    Hello all! What are the emerging technologies and innovations that will enable us to change the course we are on that will restore the health of the ocean and thus the planet with respect to oxygen production, reversing the decline in biodiversity we face in what is called the Anthropocene? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!

    The best technology is to stop a problem at the beginning before it has time to destroy:

    For example, 
    Outlaw drag nets and enforce it. They are scraping critical habitats bare. Nothing survives after they pass an area.

    Enforcement is huge around the world as Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese and Chinese poachers decimate areas.
