Marine biologist, Alan Emery, and journalist, Jonathon Gatehouse, discuss the immense changes occurring in the oceans and how these shifts are affecting Canada, a country with three ocean coasts. This conversation delves into what can be done with technology, resources, changes, and sacrifice to address the global climate crisis.

For 13 years he was president of the Canadian Museum of Nature. He has worked on numerous documentaries on the topic of marine biology; developed environmental policy documents for the Canadian government, the World Bank, and the United Nations.
