Jeroen van de WaalFounder & Chief Orca
Jeroen van de Waal is a multilingual, Dutch entrepreneur and conservationist. Through his company, OrcaNation, he teaches children and young adults to scuba dive, introducing them to the beauty and wonder of the underwater world. Jeroen is on a mission to foster a generation of ‘ocean ambassadors’, who have the passion, drive, and determination to reverse humankind’s destruction of the sea.
Together We Can Turn Tides – A Manifesto To Save The Oceans, Planet and Ourselves is the first of Jeroen’s publications. The book has received acclaim across Asia and is now making its way across Europe and the USA. Several thousand copies are now in circulation – many of them requested by schools and youth organizations, which are embracing Jeroen’s concept of conservation and education through outdoor adventure.
