THE BEGINNING

Chet Forrest is a former member of NOAA’s Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council and the author of the book: ‘Emotion For The Ocean’ which is the genesis of this website.

This book is the first in the ‘Ultimate Ocean Education for the Average Person Series’ and is the result of joint efforts between Chet and Save the Earth Foundation.

As Chet was writing the book, Roger Meyers, a long time friend, suggested composing a few songs for the project and that in turn was the beginning of the 16 song audio CD. The music and lyrics were written with young people in mind.  Not only to educate but to increase awareness of the problems facing our oceans today.

I was brought in to help collaborate with the music production and videos and go along for the ride.  During my participation I’ve not only met these two fine individuals but also the founder of Save The Earth Foundation: Neal Pargman.  I became aware of many individuals that are doing their utmost to making this planet a better place for all.

ALL PROFITS FROM THE BOOK AND AUDIO CD GO TO THE MONTEREY BAY NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY

Anyone that has visited the  Monterey Bay Aquarium knows it’s one of the coolest places for young and old.  All profits from the book and audio CD go directly to ocean research at the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.  The National Marine Sanctuary System promotes environmental protection, stewardship and ocean research.

I’m honored to be a small part of this endeavor.
