World Oceans Day 2012 - Live Webcast

On World Oceans Day - June 8th, 2012 - the Living Oceans Foundation hosted a live web-based conversation between Sylvia Earle at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History and a team of scientists researching coral reefs and their communities around the Galapogos Islands. The team was aboard the research vessel the Goldon Shadow at the northern tip of the Galapogos giving us updates on corals in the area and their resiliency to bleaching events and other ocean changes. 

The video begins with four short films about marine protected areas in the US and their update from the field is followed by a discussion among youth ocean leaders led by Sylvia Earle.
