I’ve spent a fair bit of time on the ocean on right side of North America. Not as much as many others, certainly, but enough that the birds of the Gulf Stream and pelagic “culture”, for lack of better word, are familiar to me. Birding the Gulf Stream requires patience. It requires long stretches of bird scarcity.

Sustainable Ocean Development is Possible: Q&A with Maria Damanaki

Conservancy Talk

Healthy oceans, development and economic growth can coexist. That’s the idea behind an emerging Nature Conservancy strategy led by Maria Damanaki, TNC’s new Global Managing Director for Oceans. Blue Growth by Design —which she and I are discussing this week at The Economist’s World Ocean Summit—incorporates conservation principles into ocean development plans to ensure growth in marine and coastal regions is sustainable.

Plastic has infiltrated the ocean’s ecosystem, from plankton to whales. trillion pieces of plastic trash in the world’s oceans, and each year, 8 million tons of plastic are added to the count. It’s reaching crisis proportions,” says Andreas Merkl, CEO of the Ocean Conservancy.

What Drought Looks Like in the Ocean

Conservancy Talk

As those powerful storms went north, the ocean under the ridge was left largely unmixed, and it subsequently warmed into a massive “blob” that displaced cold-adapted fish and ultimately spawned the largest and most persistent harmful algal bloom, or HAB, ever recorded. It’s not just drought—it’s what drought looks like in the ocean. This service itself comes at a cost, in the form of fundamentally changed ocean chemistry.
