“The way we live does not have to destroy life in our oceans or poison our bodies and the environment. But it takes much more than individuals changing their behaviour. A big part of the problem is what most of us don’t know: plastic pollution, harmful chemicals, and overfishing are doing their worst harm out of sight. I get to work with brilliant, committed people using science, law, and strategic partnerships to expose these problems and put an end to them.”

Adam Weiss
