With the publication of “The Sea Around Us” in 1951 Rachel Carson forever changed our relationship with the oceans of the world. From time immemorial humans have been drawn to the sea for food and recreation, as well as for exploring the world. Throughout recorded history humanity has taken the oceans of the world for granted, failing to recognize them as the origin and sustainer of life. In the ensuing years the oceans have suffered from our abuse and misuse. But it is not too late for us to change our ways and restore them. With a combination of videos and presentations this course will examine humanity’s love affair with the sea around us.
