The PlanSEA.org Mission Statement
Our mission is to produce educational multi-media programming emphasizing the importance of sustaining planet earth, with special emphasis on oceans and all marine environments.
We believe the ocean is the next critical frontier upon which to focus for the protection of resources that are vital to global quality of life and prosperity. We are thinking beyond “Going Green” and recognize the urgency of “Going Blue.”
PlanSEA.org is a non-profit video production company based in Honolulu, Hawaii. The organization was founded in 2009 by Ray Hollowell, an accomplished ocean adventure cameraman and TV producer with more than three decades of video experience. PlanSEA.org was formed to develop a comprehensive media approach to educate future generations about the importance of becoming good stewards of the sea.
PlanSEA.org, a 501(c)(3), currently consists of volunteers and a board of directors. The organization has established strategic partnerships in its initial years of existence and has created a signature ocean adventure educational television and internet series titled My Beach Report.
My Beach Report is the grass roots "Blue Movement"
The PlanSEA team is making a positive impact around the world and producing programming in several languages, which include English, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Chinese, French and Arabic. We support the conservation, preservation and protection of all oceans, rivers, lakes and marine environments worldwide.

PlanSEA Projects In Development
- The SEA of INSPIRATION Television Series: PlanSEA.org in association with WoundedWear.org and the United States
Navy League Honolulu Council present the SEA of INSPIRATION initiative. We sponsor wounded veterans and a family member
an all expenses paid ocean adventure trip of a lifetime to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. Our veteran production crew documents
their amazing ocean adventures, which will broadcast in both national and international television markets, plus internet
TV based distribution. The initiative is designed to encourage and inspire wounded service members from the United States
military by helping them connect with the healing, therapeutic powers of the ocean. Episodes one and two document Senior
Airman Brian Kolfage and Corporal Todd Love (USMC) Retired and their iconic stories of surviving life-threatening injuries
and coming back from the brink.
The SEA of INSPIRATION initiative has expanded to include children and adults with both mental and physical disabilities
such as Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down Syndrome and Cystic Fibrosis. We are currently in post-production of several segments
which will feature inspiring stories that will highlight our participants having the time of their lives while immersing
themselves in the healing powers of the ocean! Visit www.seaofinspiration.org to learn more.
- The PlanSEA.org OCEAN SAFETY Initiative: Our multilingual team accompanied by our adorable animated characters join up
with Honolulu City and County Lifeguards and top watermen and women of Hawaii to learn about ocean safety, including rules
and regulations to follow, while enjoying the tropical beaches and waters of our islands. A safe vacation makes for a fun
A Message From Our Founder
Environmental and oceanic education has been noted as lacking in regular K-12 programs, with a shockingly low amount of
students understanding even the most fundamental principles behind marine impact on the ecosystem. New projects such as
Google Oceans (a PlanSEA.org partner), work to educate the general population about our oceans, and raise the bar of ocean
literacy and education throughout the world.
PlanSEA.org is here to make a positive impact on the entire world, and we would love for you to join us. Please consider
this unique opportunity to take a leadership role in our worthwhile projects that will benefit people of all ages worldwide
for generations to come.
To the SEA!
Ray Hollowell - Founder/Managing Director
