Scientist standing up for the high seas
Dr. Evan Edinger of Memorial University stands outside the Newfoundland and Labrador Confederation Building to urge Canada to support the UN moratorium on bottom trawling. Dr. Edinger studies deep sea corals and says that they will only survive in areas that are not bottom trawled. We need to protect them now because if we damage them they will not grow back in our lifetime.
