The actor and environmental activist talks about the ocean, the best beaches, and the beauty of breaching whales
His first visits to the beach:
When I was growing up in Arizona, we’d go to SouthernCalifornia each summer and rent a cottage in Laguna Beach or SanClemente. The beach was a dream come true for me.
Becoming an ocean advocate:
During my Cheers days, I started making money. And I realized money isa responsibility. What do you do with it? You can get thingsdone.
The environmental group Oceana:
I’m on the board. We have 90 people working full time onocean issues, with offices around the globe. The world’s fisheriesare on the brink of collapse. One-third of the fish we catch arejust thrown overboard and lost. Bottom trawling destroys coralreefs. We’re attacking those problems.
