A recent edition of PBS newshour highlights PISCO subtidal monitoring conducted for California’s Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Initiative.
PISCO personnel were recently selected to present at the California and the World Ocean conference 2010. The talks focused on a range of topics from PISCO's science communication to work conducted with California's MLPA and the science surrounding MPA's.
PISCO Principal Investigator Dr. Stephen Palumbi has been invited to talk for the TED non-profit organisation.
There's a tight and surprising link between the ocean's health and ours, says marine biologist Stephen Palumbi. He shows how toxins at the bottom of the ocean food chain find their way into our bodies, with a shocking story of toxic contamination from a Japanese fish market. His work points a way forward for saving the oceans' health -- and humanity's.
On June 12, 2009, President Obama sent a memorandum to the heads of executive departments and federal agencies establishing an Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force (IOPTF), led by the White House Council on Environmental Quality. The Task Force is charged with developing a recommendation for a national policy that ensures protection, maintenance, and restoration of oceans, our coasts and the Great Lakes.
