Edith Widder on the Destruction of our Oceans

2012, Environment
Presented By: Edith Widder

“Environmental degradation is the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about,”┬ásays deep sea biologist Edith Widder. “We’re destroying the ocean before we know what’s in it.” ┬áBy using her unique technologies to help create curriculum to teach children to do real, hands-on science – sampling, analyzing data, producing results, taking community action and solving problems – she’s hoping to equip the next generation with the optimism and the tools they will need to counteract the catastrophe of ecosystems spiralling out of control.
