Our Endangered Oceans and What We Can Do to Save ThemBook - 2011
Most people know Ted Danson from television and movies, but fewer realize that over the course of the past two and a half decades, Danson has tirelessly devoted himself to the cause of heading off a looming global catastrophe--the massive destruction of our planet's oceanic biosystems and the collapse of the world's major commercial fisheries. Here, Danson details his journey from joining a modest local protest in the mid-1980s to his current status as one of the world's most influential oceanic environmental activists, testifying before congressional committees and the World Trade Organization, and helping found Oceana, the largest organization in the world focused solely on ocean conservation. And he describes what has happened to our oceans in just the past half-century, ranging from the ravages of overfishing and habitat destruction to the devastating effects of ocean acidification and the wasteful horrors of fish farms.--From publisher description.
