The natural world ignores many of the artificial barriers that humans designate, including the political one created by the U.S.'s embargo of Cuba. Daniel Whittle, of the Environmental Defense Fund, knows well that birds, fish and even oil spills connect the two countries. Whittle directs the EDF's marine and coastal conservation projects in Cuba, working on fisheries, coral reef conservation, and sustainable coastal development in Cuba and the region.
