Outside magazine profiles the “blue mind” of sea turtle visionary J. Nichols, a TIRN board member. J shares his vision for a new field of research that crosses conservation with neuroscience. He has captivated my mind and those of scientists, researchers, environmentalists, biologists, surfers and even sports magazine writers! This is an inspiring read. I hope that this story and his appearance on the cover of Outside, one of my favorite magazines (yes I subscribe), will take J’s message that loving and caring for sea turtles and the oceans is good for you to new heights! Congratulations J! And thank you Outside!
