Riki Ott, PhD is a marine toxicologist, author and former commercial fisher. She was one of the first people on the scene during the Exxon Valdez oil spill, when millions of gallons of crude oil were discharged into the pristine waters of Prince William Sound, Alaska.
She is featured in the award-winning film “Black Wave: The Legacy of the Exxon Valdez,” a documentary that details the on-going damage and struggle to rebuild the life of a community ravaged by an oil spill. She is the author of “Sound Truth and Corporate Myth$: The Legacy of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill” and “Not One Drop: Promises, Betrayal, and Courage in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill” (Chelsea Green, 2008). - http://www.rikiott.com/press.php
