My new novel “The Green Game” features awards for companies that are eco-responsible beyond their core business. Any Nominations? The list is in my web site www.xanaducorporate or in the book. “The Green Game,” about Eco-responsibility, green politics, youth and education in a twist filled, exciting mystery. The Green Game is an onion with many layers. It is about real and fictional businesses. Three students develop an internet game based on voting on green issues that changes the world. The “Green Game” is an enteraining message filled novel. If you are interested it is available at my e-store www.createspace.com/4147272 with a discount. The discount code is NW6BBYBS. It is also available in Kindle and paperback at Amazon.

About This Project 

We know now that the Sea is anything but silent. Given that sunlight does not penetrate more than a few hundred feet below the surface, and at any time more than half of the world oceans are under the dark veil of night, the ocean is actually an acoustic realm. Sound travels almost five times faster and much more efficiently underwater.

Most animals use sound perception to sense and communicate in their habitat. Unfortunately, most human activities in the ocean also use sounds, and generate noise. We are rapidly finding that there is a serious conflict between human generated ocean noise, and sea animals’ need to communicate, navigate and hear their surroundings.

Ocean Conservation Research is focused on understanding the scope of, and exploring solutions to the growing problem of human generated noise pollution and its impact on marine animals.

We engage in marine biological and technological research based on conservation priorities. We use the products of this research to inform the policies and practice of the public, industry, and lawmakers so that we may all become better stewards of the sea.
