Tanasia Swift, Community Reef Manager with Billion Oyster Project joins us to talk about a very vibrant and active water community in the heart of New York City. With a lofty goal to restore the shore with a billion oysters and rebuild this ecosystem, Tanasia is connecting with kids and local communities to educate and inspire beyond words. Many of us don’t typically associate NYC with being a water community, especially a clean one, but the City and advocates like Tanasia are working tirelessly to share their love for water with community and change that.
This episode is a recording from our weekly virtual ‘wild swim’ chats, where we connect with waterwomen every single Thursday from all over the world creating and activating for our waterways.
