This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Edie Widder, Founder, CEO and Senior Scientist at Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA). After an inspiring story about how Edie Widder became a seagoing marine biologist and deep-sea diver, this conversation covers topics such as bioluminescence which is a fascinating scientific phenomenon that provides us with a deeper understanding of fundamental biological processes and the development of new programs designed to equip a new generation with the tools they need to deal with the environmental devastation we're facing.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, From Sea to Shining Sea, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Bright Beginnings - Underwater awesomeness and environmental opportunities

II. Bioluminescence - Evolution in action

III. The Eye-in-the-Sea - Glimpsing the unseen

IV. Grappling with a Coastline Crisis - Measuring toxicity and creating pollution maps

V. Kids to the Rescue - A reason for optimism

Vi. Existential Challenges - Global concerns and worthy precedents
