This is the seventh in a series of posts about this yearâ€™s Ocean Hero finalists.
Last week I highlighted our adult Ocean Hero finalists, so this week itâ€™s the juniorsâ€™ turn. First up is 13-year-old Ayla Besemer, who may just be the next Al Gore -- for the oceans. (Except she is way cuter.)
Inspired by the beauty of the creatures in the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the documentary â€śAn Inconvenient Truth,â€ť 13-year-old Ayla and her friend Simon created â€śSave Our Seas,â€ť an interactive presentation kids everywhere can give that highlights ocean threats and 15 actions kids can take today.
To date, Ayla has given her â€śSave Our Seasâ€ť presentation to more than 1,500 people in seven states and the Bahamas.
