Come spend a wee bit of time with Kurt Lieber of Ocean Defenders Alliance and learn about the important work they do and how you might be able to get involved.

I just asked Kurt, I says, "Hey, can you send me a blurb about your talk?" Kurt replied:

"My talk is about events that happened in my life that made me appreciate all the animals in the oceans, and when I became active in marine conservation. I also discuss the decline of the kelp forests and the ripple affect that has throughout the marine ecosystems, why I started Ocean Defenders, what ODA does to help restore those ecosystems, and all the great volunteers that have joined our activities. We've removed ghost gear from the underwater habitats all along the coast of California, and have even dipped our toes, so to speak, into northern Mexico. With whale entanglements happening more frequently, it is ODA's mission to remove this ghost gear to make sure we can save as many whales as we can from suffering a slow, torturous death.

ODA is really hoping to get some people from Oregon and Washington to band together and start doing some of these ghost removal programs along your stretch of the Pacific.

Thanks, and I really look forward to meeting you and your friends!"
