Promising to bring the tequila to the 15th anniversary celebration of Grupo Tortuguero is an expensive gesture. Raising a glass with some of the most dedicated and successful marine conservationist in the world. Priceless.
Receiving news that Little, Brown & Co. would publish the BLUE MIND book capped three years of hard work. Knowing that my editors personally "get it" and love the ocean. Priceless.
Reaching our goal of 100 Blue Mind Angels gives our projects some financial security. The confidence and intellectual freedom that comes with crowdsourcing one's income. Priceless.
Releasing a billion baby turtles into the ocean is an audacious, and necessary, idea. Watching a rescued sea turtle swim free for the first--or billionth--time. Priceless.
Spreading a million blue marbles with their personal messages of gratitude around the world has taken some artful collaboration. Seeing a blue marble in the hands of the Dalai Lama. Priceless.
