Today we speak with Marc Yaggi, Chief Executive Officer of the Waterkeeper Alliance, the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of clean water. We’ll talk about his and his organization’s history going back to exploring and protecting watersheds including the one that provides New York City with its drinking water. We’ll review some of this boat-based group’s victories from Atlanta to coastal Senegal and some of the ongoing challenges we all face from Supreme Court rulings to pollutants in our water and our blood. Still, be prepared for some hope.
