Nurturing and Supporting Fragile Underwater Gems

This year, we have embarked on an incredible mission to raise awareness about the enchanting and often-overlooked creatures of the sea, the nudibranch. These vibrant and delicate sea slugs play a crucial role in the marine ecosystem, yet they remain largely misunderstood. By supporting our dedicated efforts, you’re not just contributing to ‘Waves of Gratitude,’ but also enabling a profound transformation in our understanding of the underwater world.

Your donation will fuel educational programs, outreach initiatives, and research efforts aimed at shedding light on the intricate lives of nudibranchs. Through their tireless work, we ensure that these magnificent creatures receive the attention they deserve, ultimately protecting the biodiversity of our Pacific ocean.

Join us in this vital mission. Your support is the driving force behind ‘Waves of Gratitude’ and the invaluable work being done to safeguard the intricate beauty of our ocean. Together, we can make a significant impact on the conservation of nudibranchs and our marine ecosystems.

Our Programs Are Impactful

We pick up because we live for and love what we see, feel and taste in the air on a sweet salty day. Any kine day. This is a thank you and appreciation for organizing, caring, taking action and inspiring others to join a necessary and ultra worthwhile cause. The effects are far reaching beyond our senses.

“We had a BLAST. It was a great outing, well coordinated, expertly led and great fun. I am both a diver and a gardener, so it was especially relevant to me. Thank you for what you do and for letting us be a small part of it.”

— Beth Keij, Volunteer

I walk along that beach path almost every day. It’s a special place to me and to see the transformation over the past years. The native plants, flowers and restoration is stunning. As I enter retirement by next year (hopefully), I hope be more active with the PBC and lend a hand. For now, I’m glad to see the donations from Elizabeth and I go to such good use. Thank you for making the planet a better place for all of us.
