I am listening to a podcast series called White Saviors that is produced by Canadaland. It's a series on the rise and fall of a charity called the We Charity that was founded by two brothers (one of which went to my high school in Toronto, Canada) that wanted to save children from child labor.

The organization got huge and that's where it went wrong. Now the organization is trenched in scandal and an ongoing legal investigation.

The series made me think of all of the people in marine conservation that start out with a notable mission, but end up on the wrong side of that mission.
