While we may be scattered across the country (or at this point across the world), the Deep Sea News crew has got each other’s backs. That’s why I am particularly sad to say goodbye to two members of the team, Al and Rick. I’m in awe of how Al and Rick aren’t afraid to speak their minds, tackle difficult topics and champion issues they care about. I’m losing a chunk of my internet strike force! In their offline lives, they both work to make real solutions for the ocean. And doing it all with a style and a cocktail. I wish them good luck on their upcoming adventures as they continue to make the ocean a better place for not only the things in it, but the communities around it.
