HEAL THE BAY FORMS HOLLYWOOD AMBASSADOR BOARD
Santa Monica Based Environmental Non-Profit Welcomes Over 20 Celebrity Ambassadors
Santa Monica, CA (June 7, 2016) – Ocean protection group Heal the Bay is giving new meaning to the phrase “Lights. Cameras. Action!” The Santa Monica-based nonprofit today announced the formation of a Hollywood Ambassador Board, part of its ongoing efforts to spread environmental education and advocacy to new audiences.
Ambassadors will work alongside Heal the Bay staff to increase awareness and action to protect the coastal waters and wetlands of Southern California. Current programs include Beach and Community Cleanups, the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, the Beach Report Card, Citizen Science, and a Water Literacy Speakers Bureau.
Actresses and longtime Heal the Bay board members Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Amy Smart and Sharon Lawrence welcomed the following new supporters from the entertainment industry: Ali Larter and Hayes MacArthur (Angie Tribeca), Mark-Paul and Catriona Gosselaar, Sean Murray (NCIS), Brian Dietzen (NCIS), Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal), Ashley Rickards (MTV’s Awkward), Beau Mirchoff (MTV’s Awkward), Normani Kordei (Fifth Harmony), Camille Grammer (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), Troy Garity (HBO’s Ballers), Dawn Olivieri (House of Lies), and Colman Domingo (Fear The Walking Dead).
The new Ambassador board also includes a number of young talent eager to get involved with the cause from an early age, such as Isaak Presley (Disney’s Stuck in the Middle), Jax Malcolm (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), and Chloe Noelle (Host, San Diego Fox5 Kids Korner).
“Despite the incredible strides we’ve made over the past 30 years to clean up Santa Monica Bay, there is still much work to be done,” said Alix Hobbs, president of Heal the Bay. “These new ambassadors are fresh faces who will help us connect with entertainment fans and help us explain how they can help protect what we all love.”
The Ambassadors have already been getting their feet wet by participating in Heal the Bay’s annual Nick Gabaldon Day, which celebrates diversity at the beach and L.A.’s first surfer of color by welcoming inland youth for free surf lessons. A number of Ambassadors will also be attending Heal the Bay’s annual Bring Back the Beach Gala on the sand at The Jonathan Beach Club this Thursday, June 9.
