My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Ocean Defenders Alliance, Huntington Beach, CA, USA
ODA began as a longed for dream by my friend Kurt Liber to save marine wildlife. An old dilapidated boat was donated after we looked at a lot of "turkey boats" that were in our price range. Several would have been perfect for the final "boat blows up scene" in a movie. We worked on the boat for 3 years and 4 months in my driveway before it was seaworthy. From there ODA has become a global model of how to go about accomplishing one's dreams of cleaning up the oceans and creating focused public awareness regarding the challenges and solutions of wildlife rescue and ocean cleanup. Any resource donated to this organization is used in a honed efficient manner to solve the problem at hand. It's always "All Hands On Deck" at ODA. I am proud to have served as a volunteer and co founder.
