Oceanographer Sylvia Earle brought her message of ocean conservation to Ball State University last week. In her hour-long talk, she spoke about how humans impact the ocean and the environment.
Earle also shared ideas for how to reverse some of the damage that has been done. She pointed to things like extreme weather events and pollution levels as signs that the global population has been hurting the environment.
Earle also stated that almost half of the earth's coral reefs have died. She made sure to emphasize how important it is to begin greater conservation efforts immediately.
“We have time, but not a lot,” Earle said during the presentation. “Right now, mostly in the next 10 years, will shape the next 10,000 years. We need to protect nature as if our lives depend on it, because they do.”
Earle has been studying aquatic life for over five decades. In that time, she has logged over 7,000 thousand hours underwater and has conducted over 100 expeditions.
