Ocean Country: One Woman’s Voyage from Peril to Hope in Her Quest to Save the Seas by conservationist Liz Cunningham “reveals how immersion into the problems that overwhelm us is a blessing of self-discovery. Where there is carelessness, we find our tenderness; where there is human suffering, we find our sense of compassion. Where there is damage and degradation, we find faith in ourselves,” according to author Paul Hawken. Liz has a B.A. in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic in Maine, and in addition to her work as a conservationist has been published in numerous newspapers, magazines and journals.
