The LiVBLUE Angels are the patrons who support J financially and with their trust in doing innovative and highly collaborative work with several leading non-profit organizations. It's his life's work and what he loves, excels, and works very hard at. This kind of "sea star" career wouldn't be possible without the support of the LiVBLUE Angels.
They are committed ocean lovers, who fight for what they believe in. Knowing they share our vision for a healthier ocean is very motivating for our team.
Fast Company calls LiVBLUE Angels "a personal kickstarter for one marine biologist" but it's much more than that.
By making a monthly recurring contribution of any size to support J's work, his "LiVBLUE Angels" allow him to remain an independent scientist, artful collaborator, voracious advocate, and passionate communicator in a time when new ideas and the freedom to express them are sorely needed.
He is also leading an effort to connect the seemingly disparate fields of neuroscience and ocean exploration through Blue Mind: The Mind and Ocean Initiative. Nichols has become a leading voice in the emerging new field called neuroconservation.
Dr. Nichols constantly mentors and supports the next generation of leaders, both informally and formally, as a member of graduate student committees. The LiVBLUE Angels make this important work with young conservation leaders possible.
J is also a science advisor and a board member for many leading ocean, conservation and education organizations. He is committed to building a stronger, smarter, better connected and more effective environmental movement.
This special style of sharing and collaboration requires a special group of supporters.
You can be part of our LiVBLUE Angels tribe, working hard and collaborating globally for the ocean, by making a recurring monthly pledge of any size.
You'll enjoy early access to new ideas, research, gatherings, and media as well as an invitation to the annual LiVBLUE Angels Appreciation Dinner.
DeepBlue Angels who make a recurring monthly donation of $100 or more will get a bronze wave buckle made by sculptor Joshua Hoy. You'll always see J. wearing his!
