Our marine and coastal environments are facing serious challenges: some have been going on for decades while others, such as the rapid increase in the white shark population and the lack of confirmed right whale births, is unprecedented. Sandy McFarlane believes how we address these issues will require an understanding of how we got to this moment, the complexity of the environment, and how we as humans fit into the larger ecosystem. 

On The Point, Mindy Todd talks with McFarlane about the issues, and about her latest book Swirling Currents, Controversy, Compromise and Dynamic Coastal Change
