TransparentSea is an awareness campaign aimed at highlighting coastal environmental issues on SurfSister.com.au

Surfer/ Environmental Scientist Lauren Hill is the only woman sailing for the entire month long trip, but several other Australian and British women are serving crucial roles as support crew.

Lauren Lindsey Hill is a uniquely diverse and stylish surfer , writer, and perpetual student who hails from St. Augustine, Fl.

Though Lauren's grace and natural surfing talent has afforded her many titles in the world of competitive long boarding, she went on to earn degrees in Environmental and Social Science. She has been published academically on the intersections of surfing, sustainability, and gender issues. Her work and activism continue to revolve around marine conservation and gender as they relate to surfing culture. Lauren is passionate about helping to create a more open-minded, sustainable, and egalitarian surf culture (and world).

 

TransparentSea is an awareness campaign aimed at highlighting coastal environmental issues, with particular attention given to cetaceans (whales and dolphins) and the waters they inhabit.

The first journey (Byron Bay to Bondi, Australia, 2009) successfully highlighted the plight of humpback whales and the threat faced by Japanese whaling fleets.

The second (California, October, 2011) traces the southern migration of the California Grey Whale from Santa Barbara to Baja, Mexico with an emphasis on engaging key coastal community groups and drawing awareness to the causes they support.

Her explorations of the surfing experience are supported by Bing on surfSister.com.au
