Today was a really busy day. The booth opened at 7am with the opening session at 8:15. The president of Kiribati spoke on how climate change is expected to wipe his island nation off the map. They are doing everything possible to save their country but time is against them.
Several of the short films from the Blue Ocean Film and Conservation Summit were presented at today's luncheon, along with the 2 winners of the 1st Annual Thank You Ocean Photo Competition. The winning photo was of a nudibranch from under the Coast Guard pier in Morro Bay.
The afternoon was spent in concurrent sessions about financing ecosystem services and we came away with lots of good information and ideas for the future.
Many people have visited us at the booth and reception to what we are doing by this group of environmentalists is enthusiastic about what we are doing. The Yukon photos are a big hit. Thanks to all our photographers for their submissions last year to help us show her off to her best advantage. Makes telling our story much easier.
Tomorrow is another long day - 7am to 11pm. Talk to you then.
