Our ocean faces significant threats, necessitating a bridge between scientists and the public. Discover how science communicator and TV personality Danni Washington—the first African American woman to host a nationally syndicated science series—is using a variety of media and collaborative action to help foster a healthier, sustainable future. Through compelling storytelling and real-life examples, Washington will examine the importance of our relationship to the ocean, discuss how she uses science communication as a catalyst for change, and share how, by working together, we can amplify waves of change into positive outcomes for our blue planet.
