Educational activities to raise people's awareness of marine conservation issues and how it may affect their lives and well-being, though this may not be readily apparent. The oceans are being raped for profit. Their future is in jeopardy.
Global warming seems to be the biggest and most intractable. But all the contributing problems need to be addressed. Marine conservation is a vital, yet often overlooked part of the picture. It is inextricably linked to our planet's well-being.
Observing first hand the degradation of a pristine marine enviornment in the USVI over a decade. Suprised to learn of connection to nutrient run-off from agriculture, pollution, over-fishing, global warming, etc. One planet... overstressed!
Incessant social activist. Hope to be counted among those who did not stand silent.
Fantastic calendar of events for the socially conscious, many free, most fun, all informative!
