Naomi's behavior change for a sustainable world proposal is for people to discontinue the use of sunscreens made with oxybenzone, which is damaging our reefs, and to make a switch to an alternative sunscreen that keeps our oceans clean and our animals safe.Naomi will present her research at #HABA2018.
