Come celebrate today’s ocean pioneers who are leading the way in ocean conservation and management, providing living proof that economic stability and ecological sustainability can and should go hand in hand.
Ocean Frontiers is an inspiring voyage to seaports and watersheds across the country where unlikely allies—pig farmers, industrial shippers, scientists, fishermen and conservationists—are working together to sustain the sea and our ocean economies.
From Boston Harbor, where authorities are adjusting shipping lanes to protect endangered whales; to Iowa, where famers are altering their farming practices to minimize their impact to the Gulf of Mexico or to Oregon and the Florida Keys where fishermen are working together to protect marine habitats, Ocean Frontiers is an exploration of a new era in ocean stewardship.
