Ep 32. Climate Change & Over Fishing in Coastal Communities – Ruth Leeney

 

Ruth Leeney is a conservationist and fellow activist and vegan, working hard to preserve our under water world. We covered so much in this chat and still didn't get to talk about everything, so I know for sure, there'll be a second interview with Ruth sometime in the future! In the meantime, you can support Ruth's work through Women4Oceans here.
