For the past two years, Jennifer Lash, executive director the B.C.-based Living Oceans Society, and a handful of staff have raised money, wooed scientists and lobbied government agencies in pursuit of one goal: a two-week expedition that will allow researchers to dive as deep as 650 metres below the ocean's surface in manned submersibles to hunt for deep-sea corals - colonies of tiny animals that draw their sustenance from the sea.

On Monday at 10 a.m. PT, join Ms. Lash and Globe reporter Wendy Stueck to discuss the importance of protecting deep-sea coral.
