Summit to Sea (Conservation from the top down)

On April 4 2019, Byron’s first ocean and conservation summit was held in the community centre in Byron Bay. It was presented by the Seabin Foundation and co-hosted by Patagonia. There were 16 key speakers from a variety of companies and organisations presenting solutions based conservation efforts. The proceeds of the night were donated to the Seabin Foundation.

I am both humbled and stoked to have my image ‘Liquid Silk’ as the Seabin Foundation logo after donating it to the foundation.
