Dan Burgess is an activist, strategist and ocean educator who works with a variety of organisations to spread the gospel of ocean literacy, teaching people about our seas. He believes that once people know more and feel more connected, the desire to protect our oceans will be stronger. You only protect something if you truly love it.
The Ocean Mic tour, back in June was the perfect example of this philosophy in action; a set of 5 evenings at Finisterre stores where people were invited to tell their ocean stories and share the 'watery vibes' as Dan put it. The experience was incredible, both for the Finisterre team and for Dan, who penned the words below to reflect on the success of the first ever Ocean Mic tour.
