The Defender Above & Beyond Service finalists, sponsored by Land Rover North America, are five nonprofits who go Above & Beyond to protect marine life, clean up the coasts, engage youth in science and nature, and empower veterans through environmental restoration. 


The five finalists include: Force Blue, Inc. (Mt. Pleasant, SC); Love The Sea (Maui, HI); New York Marine Rescue Center (Riverhead, NY); National Marine Mammal Foundation (San Diego, CA); and The Outside Foundation (Hilton Head, SC).

Love The Sea is a nonprofit organization co-founded in 2015 by Campbell Farrell, a passionate waterman who decided to make a change for the well-being of our ocean and its inhabitants. The vision of Love The Sea is to live in a world where the ocean is healthy and abundant with life—not plastic. Love The Sea is on a mission with coalition partners to monitor and clean every oceanfront mile in the Hawaiian Islands and beyond.
