What the Trump Administration Doesn't Understand About Ocean Conservation

Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, Jeff Orlowski

Think of the ocean as a trust fund. If you want to rely on that fund for the rest of your days, you can only use the interest.

"The scientific consensus is that to create a fully sustainable ocean, we need to fully protect at least 30% of it. Currently, the U.S. protects 13.5% of coastal waters; we'll drop to a small fraction of that if the Trump administration has its way." (Photo: Eco Cafe' Phuket/flickr/cc)
