Top Customer Reviews
50 Ways to Save the Ocean is a book with a mission. That mission is to convince the reader that:
1. The oceans are in trouble and need your help.
2. There are things each person can do to assist in the conservation of our oceanic resources, even if you live in Kansas.
Most of the ideas are good, and I appreciate that Helvarg went beyond the "donate money to..." strategies that most Americans get in their weekly mail solicitations (although he encourages you to donate money to a variety of causes and organizations). He promotes activism: volunteering, writing, and lobbying. He notes the power of consumerism in affecting how the ocean's resources are exploited ("follow the money").
I found that I do about 3/4 of the actions he recommends. The question is, how does this information get into the hands of those who are not already involved in ocean protection issues?
