Is saving the Oceans saving people as well?

Channel 6  in San Diego aired a nice report on the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and my friend Phil Zerofski, chief collector at the institute and owner of Seacamp San Diego. They are using stuff they find in the ocean for all kinds of research, including curing cancers.

I got my start as a SCUBA instructor with Seacamp San Diego and still work with their summer camp every year. If you have a kid that's interested in marine sciences, I can highly recommend their summer programs. They are not only educational, but a lot of fun to boot. Many lifelong friendships have started there, including some of mine.

If you want more information on Seacamp San Diego, visit their website at or call them at 1-800 SEACAMP

By the way, in the video they say that Phil is diving to 1200ft, they should have said 12 meters or about 40 ft.
