Publisher Description

This book is based on an in-depth filmed conversation between Howard Burton and Charles Sheppard, Professor of Life Sciences at the University of Warwick. Charles Sheppard has worked extensively for a wide range of UN, governmental and aid agencies in tropical marine and coastal development issues. This conversation explores how Prof. Sheppard is trying to find a way through political shortsightedness, corporate greed and societal indifference to use his experience to make the planet a better place.

I. Watery Beginnings - The power of scuba diving
II. Building A Reef - Coral, algae and time
III. Gratuitously Unsustainable - The problem  with humans
IV. Towards Progress? - Leadership, policies and philanthropic foundations
V. Climate Change - Two pernicious effects
VI. What To Do? - The importance of marine spatial planning
