In New York for an OceanElders meeting with Queen Noor, Ted Turner, Jean-Michel Cousteau, Silvia A. Earle and others to discuss all aspects of saving our wonderful oceans.
We’ll be looking into areas as diverse as species conservation, bottom trawling, plastic, water levels and biodiversity.
This is our second OceanElders meeting and there is certainly plenty to discuss, from conservation of the Arctic to fundraising for ocean non-profit groups.
Thank you for all of your suggestions for what we should focus our efforts upon. Everyone really can make a difference when it comes to protecting the ocean.
As Jean-Michel says: “By protecting the ocean you are protecting yourself.” It is crucial we do everything we can to conserve the ocean and its wildlife.
