Seven Crossings: A Surfer’s Journey to Find Hope for Our Changing Ocean

On July 31st at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California, professional big wave surfer and ten-time Molokai Paddle Champion Jamie Mitchell will discuss his new venture to paddle the Channel Islands to generate awareness about our changing ocean and potential solutions to support ocean health for generations to come.

Mitchell will be joined by Dr. Jerry Schubel, Aquarium president and CEO, and Dr. Ken Nealson, director of the University of Southern California’s Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies, in a discussion about the ocean and its role in a sustainable future. They will discuss new innovative and collaborative solutions and how engaging with the ocean and marine life at institutions like the Aquarium and the USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies can provide powerful connections to inspire conservation. The panel discussion will be moderated by Ryan Ashton, Aquarium vice president of development.
