Patricia Newman returns to the #RWYK #Podcast to celebrate Planet Ocean. Patricia believes that since a little more than 70 percent of Planet Earth is ocean wouldn’t a better name for our global home be Planet Ocean? She tells us that we might be surprised at just how closely we are connected to the ocean. She wants us to know that regardless of where you live, every breath you take and every drop of water you drink links you to the ocean. And because of this connection, the ocean’s health affects all of us.
