Reasons for Hope: Tierney Thys on the State of Our Ocean
音量
My name is Dr. Tierney Thys. I'm a marine biologist, film-maker, ocean conservationist, and national geographic explorer.

My overall mission is really to raise awareness of the importance of the wonder of the ocean.

Someone once asked me, what's the one tool you would wanna give to any student?

And I said, Pants down, masks on and snorkel.

98 percent of living space on this planet is ocean, that sure helps that you can see it. Any time you step off the land in the blue, you are in for an amazing adventure.

I mean the ocean never dissappoints. Any time you are in that living space, you'll have a surprise. You'll have something you've never seen before.

So I also have a particular research animal, the ocean sunfish.

The first time I've ever saw a picture of an ocean sunfish, I remember, it was late in life, I was in graduate school.

And I saw a little tiny picture of an ocean sunfish on the door of my advisor's office.

And I thought that is the most riduculous-looking fish I've ever seen.

It looks like a mistake! Where did the tail go?

And I was studying biomechanic in graduate school, and so that was a biomechanical

So I've been following these fish all over the world, from Africa to Bali, to California, to Japan. They are found all in tropical bases, but they are elusive. Depending on what country, what region of ocean I'm in, I look for them in different ways.

In California, I can use a spotter plane. Because they come to the surface, their bright-colored, they look just they are.

But you can see them from airplanes. In other countries I don't have that luxury. In those places, I look... I mean, they are really silly fish.

They have big dorsal fin, and they stick it out of the water, and they waited back and force and telling I'm over here~

They're kind of biologist's dream.

I think we have a lot of bad news, but admits the bad news we have lots of reason for hope.

We have more marine protective areas now than we ever had in the past,

and more slated to be passed through. That is a tremendous hope.

I see incredible hope in the eyes of my children, and in volunteering in my kids' school which I think is so important,

and I see in them this love and wonder of the ocean and desire to protect it.

So working with kids gives me enormous, enormous hope.
