Turning the Tide

With years of experience documenting marine life, Chris and Genevieve have also witnessed first hand, the pressures exerted on the marine environment. On land, we are able to see what is happening, what occurs at see often remains out of site and out of mind. From the frontline of the lucrative shark fin trade, to the trade in reef fish for food and aquaria, from toxic pollution to noise pollution, Chris and Gen have freed turtles from discarded fishing gear hundreds of miles from land, and cleared tons of plastic from the beaches on uninhabited oceanic atolls. Learn how we can turn the tide against these growing human threats.
