The Global Health Media Project collaborated with award-winning animator Yoni Goodman to produce The Story of Cholera. Developed in response to the devastating cholera epidemic that began in Haiti a year ago, the animation helps affected populations around the world better understand cholera and how to prevent it from spreading. The Story of Cholera is an engaging, educational animation in which a young boy helps a health worker save his father and then guides his village in preventing cholera from spreading. By making the invisible cholera germs visible, this simple animated narrative brings to life the teaching points of cholera prevention. visit us on-line at http://healthphone.org .

The ocean has degraded within our lifetimes, as shown in the decreasing average size of fish. And yet, as Daniel Pauly shows us onstage at Mission Blue, each time the baseline drops, we call it the new "normal." At what point do we stop readjusting downward?
