VIDEO: Meet oil sands innovator Joshua Martin and his dad

Josh's dad is proud of his son's work restoring wetlands, even if he's fuzzy on some of the technical details

Can your spouse or parents explain what you do for a living? It can be a challenge if you have a very specialized or technical job, like, for example, reclaiming peatlands disturbed by oil sands operations to a self-sustaining hydrology with native fen species. In this video, Joshua Martin’s father does a pretty good job talking about what his son does for a living. More important is the pride he shows in having a son who is making a difference on behalf of industry and the environment.
