187: Ocean Champions

With ocean politics, there is no choice but to organize and confront anti-environment bias with communications, endorsements, and advocacy for the legislators who respect the ocean and promote policy that protects and sustains marine resources for the future. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will herald Ocean Champions (oceanchampions.org), the only organization in the United States with this mission and the only organization of its kind focused solely on oceans and ocean wildlife.
