The Great Barrier Reef is Still Great
A recent headline announced that “97 percent of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is Dead,” a statement based on studies of sections of the reef. For the last three years, however, Susan has been sailing the Great Barrier Reef on her boat, Honu, and found it very much alive. Susan will talk about the science and politics in Australia regarding it’s world heritage reef as she shows photos of the extraordinary marine life she has encountered there.
Susan, a former registered nurse, earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Hawai'i in 1985 and is a graduate of the university’s Marine Option Program. Since 1987, Susan has written a weekly column called “Ocean Watch” for the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, and has written eight books about nature in Hawai'i.Her latest books are “Call Me Captain, A Memoir of a Woman at Sea.” and “Kolea, The Amazing Transpacific Life of the Pacific Golden-Plover.” Both will be available for sale.
