As a marine biologist and a journalist, I often wake up with a sense that I have to make some kind of change in the world, that the path of one who makes change and who forges other paths has been left to people like me, and others with a similar interest. I have been given these opportunities and these chances, now what am I going to do with them? what will I do as a person who knows, to save what we have left? This mindset is what has carried me this far already, and every day when I feel the pull, I try to speak out, or write, or set myself against the grain of the fast-moving sheep.
But it's hard.
