As scuba divers we become invested in the health of our oceans simply by being witness to the beauty of the reefs and the wondrous aquatic life that is contained within it. Today on Planet Earth Diver it’s an Ocean and US Coastal Water health check with Dr George H Leonard from Ocean Conservancy. George talks about the hot buttons facing the ocean today plus what is being done right now. While there are serious challenges facing our seas – there are some areas of progress and hope.
What I am impressed with the most about Ocean Conservancy is that they are working towards bringing business, government and recreational users of the Oceans together so that we all win – including the environment.
