An unrelenting torrent of bad news about coral reefs dying, fish populations collapsing, and shorelines choked in plastic has led many to believe we have done irreparable damage to the ocean. Yet the past decades have also witnessed a growing number of successes in saving species, protecting places, harvesting wisely, reducing pollution, and restoring habitats. These and other examples inspired the Ocean Optimism initiative, whose goal is to recognize, learn from, replicate, and celebrate our successes. Knowlton is the Sant Chair for Marine Science at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and co-host of the Earth Optimism Summit in Washington, D.C.
