Hello Everyone!

My name is Danielle Furuichi and I am the new Programs Coordinator at Heal the Bay. It makes me so happy to see your commitment and enthusiasm for protecting and advocating 

for the ocean. I met some of you at our Chasing Coral event, and I am looking forward to working with all of you on your projects and sharing your passion for the environment! 

A little bit about me: Growing up near the beach, I have always loved the ocean and been fascinated by all of its inhabitants. I always spent my weekends at the beach, and I missed the ocean like crazy while I went to school in the Midwest. After graduating from Indiana University in 2016, I traveled all around Europe and then finally returned home to Los Angeles. I became a teacher and began volunteering at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. From there, I connected with Heal the Bay, and I could not be more excited to work with all of you! On the weekends, you can catch me rock climbing, hiking, and surfing–or at least attempting to surf.  

UPCOMING EVENTS

This Saturday (4/28) is the City Nature Challenge: Malibu Lagoon Bioblitz!! The City Nature Challenge is all about competing with other major cities to see who can make the most observations of nature and find the most species. This is an awesome chance to meet people, learn about our environment, AND earn Club Drops!  You can register and learn more about this event on Eventbrite:   https://www.eventbrite.com/e/city-nature-challenge-2018-malibu-lagoon-bioblitz-tickets-44574529618
