Our Ambassadors

Supporting efforts to create common knowledge*.

A special group of patrons, the Blue Mind Works Ambassadors, support J's pioneering work financially through both Patreon and the Blue Mind Fund, generously share their time and creativity, and deeply trust in his innovative and highly collaborative work.

Partnering with several leading non-profit organizations, a wide range of international students, and businesses across many sectors is leading to a bigger, wider, stronger blue movement for wild and healthy waters and oceans. Dr. Nichols' goal is to make the Blue Mind ethos and science common knowledge around the world.

Since the launch of the New York Times bestseller Blue Mind Dr. Nichols has seen the book translated into a dozen languages and formats, shared over 300 keynote addresses, workshops, and talks around the world, created a media footprint that has reached a billion people through leading radio, print, TV, podcast and internet outlets, and mentored leaders across many sectors.

Wherever he goes J. constantly mentors and supports the next generation of leaders, both informally and formally, as a member of graduate student committees and as an advisor to numerous educational programs. J's a science advisor and a board member for many leading water, ocean, conservation, and education organizations. He's committed his life to building a stronger, smarter, better connected, and more effective blue movement.
