S2: E21: Surfonomics and Ocean Conservation with Chad Nelsen

For the final episode of Season Two, Dr. Chad Nelsen, CEO of the Surfrider Foundation, and I discuss “surfonomics”, the threats our oceans and coasts face, and how surfing can play a large role in conserving our planet.

Chad earned his Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Engineering from UCLA, and has been working in ocean and coastal conservation for over 25 years, working at the intersection of advocacy, ocean recreation, and grassroots organizing. His research at UCLA led him to become a founder in the field of “surfonomics,” which studies the economic value of surfing and ocean recreation.
