Women in the Water — Part II: Eye on the Horizon

To wrap up Women’s History Month, we bring you Part II of our Women in the Water series! We are honored to be in the company of such brilliant and passionate women and to hear about their amazing experiences as conservationists in the marine world. While there evidently are still battles to be fought, these women are making waves, and empowering and inspiring others to do the same.

Seagrasses are aquatic flowering plants that are found along a broad latitudinal range. As one of the planets most effective and efficient coastal systems for carbon sequestration, proper conservation and management of seagrass meadows is critical to combat the global loss of seagrasses. Carbon storage is one of many ecosystem services provided by seagrass beds. Seagrasses also provide a nursery ground for commercially and recreationally harvested species of fishes and invertebrates, serve as a storm buffer to developed coastlines and improve water quality (Figure 1).

The Ocean Foundation (TOF) has initiated a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to identify an organization qualified to conduct a blue carbon restoration project in seagrass, saltmarsh, or mangrove habitat to pilot the use of blue carbon restoration in the local mitigation of ocean acidification (OA). The restoration project must occur in Fiji, Palau, Papua New Guinea, or Vanuatu. The selected organization will be required to work with a TOF-designated science partner in the country of their project.

On January 21, TOF Board members Joshua Ginsberg, Angel Braestrup, and I participated in a Salisbury Forum event focused on plastic waste in the ocean. The event began with the 2016 film “A Plastic Ocean,” a beautifully filmed, emotionally devastating overview of the ubiquitous distribution of plastic waste throughout our global ocean (plasticoceans.org) and the harm it is causing to ocean life and to human communities as well.

Dear House Natural Resources Committee member:

We urge you to vote “no” on H.R. 3133, a bill that would gravely weaken the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), our nation’s commitment to the conservation of all marine mammals: whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, walruses, sea otters, polar bears, and manatees.

My late grandmother was a big believer in the old adage “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” She knew that relying on one skill or one industry or one source of income was a high-risk strategy. She also knew that independence was not the same as dominance. She would know that the American people should not bear the burden for those who seek to sell our public eggs for personal reward. I look at the map from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and I have to ask myself—what would she say about the eggs in this basket?
