WOWSA Man of the Year Nominee Doug Woodring (Hong Kong) – Ocean Recovery Alliance Visionary

Doug Woodring is a lightening rod of positive energy and practical action. 

He not only organizes the Clean Half Extreme Marathon Swim and Sheko Challenge open water race every year in Hong Kong, but he works to bring awareness and practical solutions to the problems of pollution in our ocean. 

Co-founder of the successful Project Kaisei and the Hong Kong Shark Foundation, he recently founded Ocean Recovery Alliance.

The Ocean Recovery Alliance focuses on bringing innovative remedies, technology, collaborations and policy together to improve the health of the ocean.  He announced two global preventative platforms at the Clinton Global initiative related to plastic waste, including Global  Alert – Floating Trash, and the Plastic Disclosure Project.  Doug is constantly working behind the scenes to make our Earth a better place.  For his vision, commitment and successes, Doug Woodring is certainly a worthy nominee for the 2011 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year.
