Drum roll, please: weâ€™re excited to unveil our latest video starring actress and ocean lover, Aimee Teegarden of â€śFriday Night Lights.â€ť
We traveled with Teegarden up the coast of Southern California, from La Jolla to Santa Barbara Island, filming a video about the need to protect the oceanâ€™s threatened habitats.
Teegarden showed off her surfing skills and also free dove with sea lion pups in a gorgeous kelp forest.
â€śItâ€™s amazing that hidden treasures like this exist all over the ocean â€“ you just have to look for them. Itâ€™s really upsetting to think about an awesome place like the sea lion rookery being destroyed by destructive fishing, pollution, or anything else harmful,â€ť said Teegarden. â€śThis experience made it clear that we need to identify these unique and important areas in the ocean and do whatever we can to save them. I love that Oceana finds the special places like this and then fights to protect them.â€ť
