Description

Ted Danson: Our Endangered Oceans and What We Can Do to Save Them

Actor; Environmentalist; Author, _Oceana _

Few people realize that celebrated actor Danson has devoted himself to heading off a global catastrophe: the destruction of our oceanic bio-systems and the collapse of the world’s major fisheries. Danson discusses his journey from joining a local protest to founding the world’s largest organization focused solely on ocean conservation.

Danson is best known for his role on the TV show Cheers, but for those in the conservation movement, he is famous for his work as a passionate ocean advocate and Oceana spokesman. Danson helped create the American Oceans Campaign in 1987, which eventually became Oceana in 2001. In the last two decades, Ted has appeared in public service announcements, appealing to donors and testifying to the government on the condition of our oceans.
