6:30 – Drinks, Registration
7:00 – Presentations begin with never before seen footage taken by J (and team) from the Gulf
7:15 – J presents on his travels & new programs created by Ocean Revolution

While the cap is now in place, and the flow may be under control, the work for the ocean remains.

Earlier this month Dr. Wallace “J” Nichols traveled to the Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe to understand first-hand the horrific conditions facing sea turtles during and after the devastation that recently occurred in the gulf. As part of a response team focused on sea turtle rescue and rehab efforts, J is now learning what can and should be done to help save the turtles. In one month he is returning from his trip and he needs our help.

To celebrate J’s efforts and raise money for future research trips we invite you to join us at the Ocean Revolution Benefit on Thursday, July 29th here at the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts. In addition to supporting J’s remarkable work in the Gulf, you’ll be learning about positive changes we can make in the Gulf with your help.

Presentations begin with never before seen footage taken by J (and team) from the Gulf. This will be followed by J presenting on what he saw, talking about new programs created by Ocean Revolution, and describing how Ocean Revolution will address oil, toxins, and plastics in the Gulf.
