Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) has become immensely popular over the last few years. That's what made it the ideal vehicle for Justin Riney to use as he raises awareness of conservation issues and celebrates the ecological diversity of our state. The name of his project is Expedition Florida 500, in commemoration of 500 years of European settlement in Florida. Another project of Justin's Mother Earth is the Ocean Hour cleanup. Justin showed that even when it's not obvious, coastlines have a way of hiding trash.

The video was shot entirely on the Saint Marks National Wildlife Refuge.
