From the environmental activist and actor Ted Danson comes the ultimate guide to saving our oceans.
In “Oceana,” actor Ted Danson describes his other, 20-year career as an ocean activist and shares the often frightening yet hopeful news about the crisis in our oceans. Ted’s journey began when he joined a local protest in the mid-1980s to oppose offshore oil drilling near his Southern California neighborhood. Today, Ted is a leading spokesperson on international ocean issues and a board member of Oceana, the largest organization in the world focused solely on ocean conservation.
