Become an ambassador

You are so important to our success and there are numerous ways in which you can take action on behalf of our 100,000th Student Campaign. The following list outlines the many different opportunities you, your school, or your organization can pursue to further support O'Neill Sea Odyssey.

Maia Negre Fine Art

Santa Cruz based artist, Maia Negre, has partnered with OSO to increase ocean awareness and help raise money for the 100,000th Student Campaign. Through her captivating artwork, we're invited into the world beneath the surface that OSO strives to inspire youth to protect. 20% of sales from Maia's O'Neill Sea Odyssey series will benefit the program. One of her series' paintings (above) was inspired by the iconic photograph taken by Steve Lawson in October 2011. Lawson captured the moment when a 35 to 40 foot humpback whale surfaced just 20 feet from the Team O'Neill catamaran with students on-board.

New Leaf's Envirotokens

Through the end of 2017, you now have the ability to support OSO and our 100,000th Student Campaign when you reuse your grocery bags. As a customer, whenever you reuse a grocery bag at either New Leaf market in Capitola or Downtown Santa Cruz, O'Neill Sea Odyssey is eligible to receive your 10¢ Envirotoken donation. Giving back to the community and the ocean, each time you shop.
