Welcome to our "Ocean Passion Series" where we are interviewing ordinary people doing extraordinary actions for the ocean. We believe learning from others can help our own life become more engaged and inspired. This week our guest is living in the east coast of USA and believes all the strength comes from the heart.
Hey Kevin! Can you tell us about yourself and where you are in the world ?
Oh wow you're a leader in the ocean world for Sea Shepherd! That is awesome! How long have you known your passion for the ocean and can you remember what brought it to the surface?
We are grateful for all you are doing for us. Can you do the same for all other animals too? I decided that day to become vegan.~Kevin Starboard
Incredible! So you have been doing earth action for 32 years now! That is just so amazing Kevin and we love it! With all those doors you have knocked we are sure you exposed a lot of issues of the ocean to new minds. Tell us what action do you do to give back or help the ocean?
Well, we have a very active Sea Shepherd chapter here in Philly, so we are constantly looking for events we can table at, show films, do beach cleanups, and generally educate the people on the state of the oceans, and of course, the earth.
Brilliant! That is a great list of ideas that many of our readers can create in their own areas to help. You seem to be an awesome leader who is very active! Getting more personal Kevin tell us how has your passion for the ocean changed your thinking and your life?
Between Buddhist practice and activism, you truly realize that we are all one, and that we are all very intimately interconnected. Harming one, harms us all.
That is a statement that we at Pelagic Love deeply agree with Kevin. The interconnections on this earth are something we need to protect by not harming any. It is a web of life that we are a part of and losing one affects the web. With all of you action what ocean organization is your favorite and why?
LOL! Yes with you as a leader for one of Sea Shepherd's Chapters we definitely know where your focus is and who you stand for. In your own words what would you like people to know that was a great lesson you have learned because of your passion?
We love that! How you have really connected your spiritual self with your drive to help and protect life. To really listen and hear dolphins speak to you is just beautiful Kevin and how you changed your diet to help more animals. Thank you for such a connection. What would you have done differently to get you to where you are now that may help someone else get further into helping the ocean?
Oh how amazing would that be to sail the open ocean with such a passionate conservation organization!
