Knowing, Connecting and Protecting the Salish Sea, with Joe Gaydos

Saving an endangered species is hard. Saving an ecosystem is even harder - especially when so few people even know the name of the place you’re trying to save. As residents of the Salish Sea we have an obligation to take care of it. But that is no small task. It’s been undergoing human-caused changes for hundreds of years and the current factors threatening it are complex and interconnected. Gaydos, Chief Scientist for the SeaDoc Society, will talk about what makes the Salish Sea so amazing, and what we can do to address some of the largest issues hindering recovery.
