Series Description: Two thirds of the globe is ocean. And while most people are just starting to hear about problems with overfishing, pollution, coral reef troubles and other issues, a far-flung group of unsung heroes --marine biologists, fisheries scientists, and conservationists worldwide -- are already hard at work inventing, devising and implementing solutions. By focusing on those solutions, the series helps viewers understand both what the problems are and the vision forward.
