From California's Golden Shore to D.C's Blue Vision Summit
David Helvarg returns with his new book: Golden Shore: California’s Love Affair with the Sea. CA resources once abused were followed by passionate stewardship. Not forgotten was CA oil spill and images of oiled seabirds. Today they’re first in the nation for ocean conservation. David gives many examples of returning wildlife. Blue whales swim just offshore of Los Angeles & Long Beach, two very busy ports. David, Wendy Benchley and a whole raft of us ocean advocates invite you to the Blue Vision Summit 4 and the Peter Benchley Oceans Awards, May 13-16, 2013. Discover what Dr. Sylvia Earle, Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Representatives Ed Markey and Sam Farr, Sherman Lagoon cartoonist, a coast guard admiral, a port director, an oyster farmer, a young sub pilot and a coastal paddler all have in common? They and many others will gather and together we’ll tell Congress: “Now is the time. Our oceans are rising, none too cleanly, and our voices are too!”
