EMily H. King: Act now - Save our Oceans!
It’s no surprise to anyone that the ocean, and the planet, is in trouble – and that things aren't getting any better. But could saving the ocean really be as simple as talking about what you like about it? Biologist Emily King seems to think so and she’s here to convince you too.
Ever since I was a child, I’ve been in awe of the natural world. From the biggest animal or tallest tree to the tiniest, microscopic, single-celled bacterium – it all amazes me. So it came as no surprise to anyone when I decided to become a biologist. After completing my Master’s Degree in Florida, I had the opportunity to come to China to work on pandas, a chance I leapt at. Beyond the excitement of living abroad and experiencing new things, I was struck by one thing – the general lack of awareness for the environment. From that day forth, I’ve tried to rectify this situation.
