On this podcast we have the CEO of the Surfrider Foundation Dr. Chad Nelson. “Chad’s 16 years at the Surfrider Foundation as the Environmental Director has been marked by outstanding stewardship of our conservation mission,” Surfrider Foundation’s Board of Directors Chair Liisa Pierce Fiedelholtz shared in this news release. “Nelsen’s proven track-record of leading high impact campaigns has clearly demonstrated his ability to significantly build the reach of this incredible organization.” How does an organization like Surfrider Foundation reach and get people to act? What are the initiatives that Dr. Nelson is implementing to save our beaches? What makes him different from his predecessors? These are the questions I have on a topic that is near and dear to my heart. Hopefully they shed some insight on what we should all be doing to save our beaches. Enjoy!
