Exploitation will cause the archipelago’s marine resources such as ecotourism that sometimes overused and still causing damages in marine life. Therefore, it’s time to realize the importance of preserving such resources in all aspects, the lands and the waters.
Mankind is consuming the ocean’s resources at an alarming rate. Plastic washed into the sea lingers in the environment for many years, harming fish and animals. Exploitation will cause the archipelago’s marine resources such as ecotourism that sometimes overused and still causing damages in marine life. Will human ingenuity and the will to resolve the problems facing the ocean – and therefore our future prosperity – be enough to avert the dire predictions about what will happen if we do not?
Ocean Community Housing
The Seasteading Institute has also been dealing with the challenges faced by communities trying to live permanently on the ocean. It is an audacious but essentially pragmatic endevour. Taking a cue from the Tanka people, the plan is locate in the protected, territorial waters of a nation willing to “host” the structures and their inhabitants. From a calm coastal area, the logistical challenges needed allow a community to live on the high seas can be solved one at a time.
Enhancing Our Marine Life
An Interview Session with Ms. Sutra Anjani (marine biologist):
Over 1.3 billion people — one fifth of humanity — mostly in developing countries, live in coastal communities bordering tropical seas. These waters host a wide array of ecosystems that are subjected to an equally diverse set of human impacts by societies with different traditions, beliefs, expertise and governance styles. Many of these communities depend greatly on coastal ecosystems for food and livelihoods.
Imagine being able to accurately predict extreme weather events such as hurricanes Harvey and Irma months in advance to better prepare those in their paths. Recently in San Francisco Bay, KPIX 5 caught a glimpse of such a future: a boat pulling two high-tech “saildrones” out to the Pacific.
