We asked our Twitter fans on @missionblue to share their ideas for saving the ocean. Here’s a sampling of what they replied:
@galapa_gal: Placing GPS units on all registered vessels like they are doing now in Galapagos good idea however pirates still fish
@oceanuni: fund research in healthcare to reduce amount of plastics/ improve disposal/ reduce biohazards
@davidwsaunders: quit serving straws in all those drinks you get at the bars and restaurants.
@selinjessa: get the word out, and touch people through film, stories, art, etc.
@oceansolutions: recycle wastewater and capture more urban runoff.
@oceanuni: up-cycle military drones/ UAVs for Ocean health monitoring with offshore landing/ data relay pads.
@leighleighsf: What about an adoption program? Can people adopt a portion of a hope spot/fundraise/create awareness?
@teamsharkwater: Lead, Follow or step aside. Together we can stop shark finning and save humanity!
@galapa_gal: Scholarships for Galapagos students so they can study abroad with a commitment to return and apply their knowledge in the isles
