Announcing a new Meetup for The Dive Club!

When: Wednesday, May 26, 2010 6:30 PM

Boulder, CO 80301
David Helvarg has devoted his life to the world’s oceans and the people who depend on them. His memoir, SAVED BY THE SEA: A Love Story with Fish, is the remarkable story of his career both in activism and journalism, where his fight to save the oceans has become a visionary and at times all consuming cause.
From bodysurfing Central American war zones, diving barrier reefs with his tragically fated love Nancy, or being bumped by a whale off Antarctica, David Helvarg has lived a life often as endangered as the ocean he now works to protect. ‘Saved by the Sea – A Love Story with Fish,’ is the well-told tale of this long-time journalist and private investigator’s personal love, loss and redemption in the free flowing heart of our blue marble planet.
This eloquent and honestly told recounting of the changes in one man's journey and the world ocean over the last half-century is also a profound, startling and sometimes surprisingly funny reflection on the state of our seas and the intimate ways in which our lives are all linked to the natural world around us.
Join OFD in welcoming David as he tours the country for two and a half months beginning in May and ending on July 28th. As always, the event is free and drinks and light refreshments will be served.
