Its nomination reads, “The Blue Journey Dangerous Waves Project is an educational effort by Bruckner Chase in collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service and Ocean Today. It bolsters an impactful, practical film series with a public outreach via clinics and talks that are augmented by partnerships with like-minded corporate partners, community groups, villages, schools and environmental organizations. Surf Zone Safe is the upcoming Ocean Today film series with location and community specific advice for American Samoa, the American East Coast, Pacific Northwest, Southern California and Hawaii.
