Aquarius Reef Base - No funding for this important scientific underwater habitat.
Two thirds of the planet is comprised of water. Vast oceans surround the continents, but sadly too little is known about this mysterious underwater realm. More is known about our moon than the seas that give us life on land. From the largest mammals swimming the oceans to the most minute creatures, each is part of a world dependent on nature's balance. It is a sobering thought that even one scientific endeavor related to ocean studies should fall victim to budget cuts. That may well be the case very soon.

Our very survival is dependent on healthy and sustainable oceans. Read for yourself the true stories within the pages of each Bryson McGann novel what NESSA is doing to keep the ocean eco-system viable.
