OCEAN CHAMPIONS is a totally non-profit environmental project. The book has now been translated into Spanish and Indonesian for free distribution to schools in Mexico and Indonesia.
In Indonesia, a grant from the Direct Aid program in Australia enabled the translation and printing of 5,000 copies of OCEAN CHAMPIONS / PARA JAGOAN LAUT in 2018. The official distributor, Sea Trek Sailing Adventures, has and is distributing books to schools on islands and in villages that are only accessible by water, from Borneo to Papua and various islands in between. Books were also distributed over land in Borneo, around Bali and Nusa Penida and sent to Lombok to earthquake victims.
With coordination and funding from Mexico Azul, Olinca, Plastic Oceans, Vive Planeta Azul, and an anonymous donor, 2,300 copies of OCEAN CHAMPIONS / DEFENSORES DEL OCÉANO were printed early in 2019. 2,000 copies are going to schools in Mexico City and the rest to schools in Mahahual on the Caribbean coast and in the Melaque/Barra de Navidad area on the Pacific coast.
Currently further fundraising is underway to print more books in Mexico .
PLEASE DONATE TO HELP PRINT MORE COPIES OF OCEAN CHAMPIONS IN MEXICO. EACH $3 CAD WILL COVER THE COST OF PRINTING ONE BOOK.
Donations can be made via PayPal or a credit card.
I am currently also working on getting the book printed in other Latin American countries and possibly other developing countries.
