news 2013-1216-TimnbackofshirtApril 22nd marks the 54th anniversary of Earth Day.  While most countries will celebrate this day with lots of green festivities, I want to talk about some of the exceptional things that people involved with Ocean Defender's Alliance (ODA) do on a regular basis.  I don't mean what ODA the organization has done; I update you on that all the time!  Rather, on this special day I want to share stories about some of ODA's proactive volunteers.

Kurt Lieber releases two lobsters that were trapped in cages!As you may recall, last month we were alerted to an unattached net within the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, just off the coast of Anacapa Island near a site called Frenchy's Cove.  We removed about 600 pounds of squid net on March 30th, but we ran out of air and couldn't get it all.  This time, we were going back to the site with re-breather (RB) divers who can stay down for over three hours if necessary.  And I thought we'd need them since we didn't know how much more net was left to remove.
