Kyle Thiermann, a 20-year-old surfer and activist based in Santa Cruz, California receives the Blue Frontier's Peter Benchley Youth Award.
Kyle has raised more than awareness, he has helped moved millions from the Bank of America lenders to a high impact coal fired plant in Chile into local banks to claim your change for a better environment, cleaner energy, a helathier community and at the same time saving some beautiful waves and natural shoreline.
The Blue Frontier/ Peter Benchley awards acknowledge outstanding achievement leading to the protection of our coasts and ocean and the communities that depend on them. They are opportunity to unify, inspire and recognize the varied components that make up the expanding marine conservation community; to celebrate what we’ve accomplished and the wonders of the blue ocean planet we’re all a part of.
