OceanHeroes are nominated individuals who inspire us with their work in ocean advocacy and friendship with the sea. Through them, we learn how we can all make a difference. These individuals have leveraged their professional skills with their passion for protecting the oceans or sharing their love of our blue planet, to elevate them, in our minds, to hero status. We share their messages with YachtWorld.com┬ávisitors every month. We encourage you to read about their work and their foundations, then consider how you might nominate an individual you think should be recognized for their own efforts to protect our marine environments, or to help change the world through their boating connections, as an “OceanHero”.
