What kind of environment group activities would you like to do?

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.

What environmental issues are you most concerned with?

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.

What triggered your interest/passion in the environment?

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!

Introduction

Incessant social activist. Hope to be counted among those who did not stand silent.

What avra c. is saying about this Meetup Group

Fantastic calendar of events for the socially conscious, many free, most fun, all informative!
