Over the course of dozens of scuba diving trips, marine biologist Ayana Elizabeth Johnson fell in love – with a fish. In this ode to parrotfish, she shares five reasons why these creatures are simply amazing (from their ability to poop white sand to make colorful “wardrobe changes”) and shows why they need our protection from the destruction of coral reefs.
This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.
