Meet the Planet: January 27th, 2007
Today on Meet the Planet, Drew Weiner from Reef Protection International talks about how individuals can protect coral reefs through choosing the right species for home aquariums. Bringing awareness to how fish are collected and sold and what fish should be left on our coral reefs can help keep our reefs and aquariums healthy. Emma Clifford from Animal Balance discusses the importance of effectively reducing and controlling the cat and dog population in the Galapagos Islands in order to promote local biodiversity. Jay Watson of the Student Conservation Association and alum of the program, Jenny Siler, talk about getting young people involved in conservation and restoration.
