Kelp Beds and Cleaner Waters: One Paddler’s Advocacy, by Brent Allen
Dec 14, 2016
There are so many ways we, as paddlers, can be a part of a positive advocacy regarding the environment. Wherever you are and whatever you do, be inspired to keep waterways clean, pristine and accessible for others. Here is one man’s impact he has made on his local paddling grounds through the use of natural kelp beds to help clean the water. Aloha to YOU, Brent Allen and thank you for leading the charge!
When we love something, we seek to protect it. That’s how Brent Allen began his conservation efforts in the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary in California.
Adventure and Preservation
Adventure and exploration of our water planet is as old as time.
The advent of standup paddling as a means of exploration and as a sport has created a renewed sense of exploring our oceans, lakes, waterways and marine habitats.
As a paddler and an avid outdoorsman, I am very fortunate to have the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary as my paddle sanctuary in the world . The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is currently the largest US national marine sanctuary and includes a shoreline length of 276 miles stretching from North of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco to Cambria in San Luis Obispo County, California. It is a complicated area of water that requires great respect.
