Eco Company visits the Monterey Bay Aquarium known throughout the world for it's conservation efforts. With over 35,000 plants and animals , the exhibits inspire us to preserve our oceans. First we take a look at some of the exhibits through the eyes of special tour guides, teen volunteers whose messages are music to our ears. Jordan tags along on a tour.

Then Brendan meets up with another group of young eco warriors. This group is tackling coastal wetlands. These teens are learning how they can make a difference by restoring a coastland area for native plants and wildlife. Brendan puts on the gloves to see what they were doing.

Back on Monterey Bay, Jessica finds yet another group of eco heroes. These girls are participating in the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Young Women In Science program. They get their sea legs and head out on the Monterey Bay, home to more than 30 species of marine mammals. But there is danger in these waters in the form of trash. This group is tracking it down. Jessica put on her life jacket to join them and see what it is all about.

One of things Eco Company has learned is what we do on land has a dramatic effect on our oceans and seas. So Adam went looking for cleanest, most environmentally-friendly car of the future. In Sacramento, CA, he found the California Fuel Cell Partnership, a group of car manufacturers who have come together to create just that. They're developing Fuel Cell cars that run on hydrogen and the cars are a reality. Adam got to take one for a test drive. Take a look and see what you might be driving in 8-10 years.
