I can't think of a better way to kick off Earth Day 2008 than brunch with Wallace J. Nichols - third culture oceanographer and Ocean Conservancy senior scientist. Later today, he's giving a keynote address here at Duke, so it's a good opportunity for us to catch up. Readers may remember J.'s research featured here on loggerhead sea turtles last October, and tonight he'll announce the winner of the first annual EcoDaredevil Award during his talk titled: '

Jump the Chasm: Are you an EcoDaredevil?

'

EcoDareDevil is a cool concept... Check this out:

Everywhere I go, I meet EcoDaredevils. They are debating, creating, evolving--yes, sometimes crashing--but always, always coming back for more.

The EcoDareDevil award will recognize young people across the nation who, through science, policy or personal action, have taken a particular risk and shown exceptional courage and creativity to go against the mainstream to successfully solve or raise public awareness for an environmental issue. He's celebrating the folks Chris and I call 'Intersection Personalities' meaning we'll definitely be in good company! So with that, I'm off to find J. with more coming on this year's EcoDareDevil soon...
