Review for Ocean Defenders Alliance, Huntington Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first met Kurt Lieber while working for another nonprofit marine conservation organization. I became a financial supporter of ODA after learning more about its mission and success in removing marine debris: a lot of bang for little buck. I contacted ODA about working with a separate organization, For the Oceans Foundation in Costa Rica, to pursue a campaign to collect and repurpose plastic debris from rivers and the ocean and to prevent it from reaching these waterways through better waste management systems. Kurt and his dedicated team had the necessary expertise, knowledge, experience, and contacts for this project based on their many years of success off the coast of California. The hope is to use ODA’s work as a model for other coastal communities interested in tackling the same issues with equally good results.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field
