Oregon's "State Of The Coast" Gathering Nears


The importance of the world's oceans cannot be overstated.  So much life depends upon the life cycles of the ocean, even creatures that never get near the water. 

So it should come as no surprise that the annual State of the Coast conference in Coos Bay usually gets more requests for attendance than seats to hold the people. 

Everything from current marine science to ocean policy by governments gets an airing.  Jamie Doyle and Megan Kleibacker of Oregon State University sit with us for a crash course on all the State of the Coast includes.
