One Island, One Ocean
On May 31, 2009, Herb McCormick and a committed team of sailors, scientists, teachers and conservationists joined forces on a voyage that was vast in scope and ambition but launched under the simplest of ideas, to circumnavigate North and South America. The continents of North and South America are a single island, surrounded by a shared ocean, and with a common set of challenges, communities, issues, and solutions. To put it in the simplest terms, we creatures of
the land are utterly dependent on the sea around us, and we'd better take care of it, or it won't take care of us. Herb will tell the story of that amazing adventure and share photos and insights, while sounding a call to action for everyone who loves this planet.
