Seventeen named storms struck the greater Caribbean region in 2017—wreaking havoc on human communities and natural resources alike. So many families lost loved ones, their livelihoods, and their homes—it is hard to measure the magnitude of the emotional effects even as we strive to address what we can measure. At the one year mark of the recovery from Hurricane Maria’s devastating impact on St. Croix, Puerto Rico, and other American islands, we know that it may be decades before the human communities and natural resources fully recover.

While “Shark Week” is less of a train wreck than it used to be, I prefer real life sharks and real science to the often sensationalized television or movie programs concerning sharks. I’ve focused on sharks for the last few years, working at a shark lab in the Bahamas, and then continuing on to graduate school at Duke University.

Blue waves of t-shirts, hats, and signs flooded the National Mall on Saturday, June 9th. The first ever March for the Ocean (M4O) was held in Washington, DC on a hot, humid day. People came from all over the world to advocate for the preservation of one of our greatest necessities, the ocean. Making up 71% of the earth's surface, the ocean plays a crucial role in the wellbeing of the world and ecosystem cycle. It unites people, animals, and cultures.
