Background/Purpose: The intention of this paper is to stimulate the interest for the ozone layer, especially among young colleagues in photobiology; the “layer” is not only important, but also fascinating.

Conclusion: In spite of remarkably effective action, the recovery of the ozone layer will be a long-term process. It will need the attention, also of scientists, for decades to come.
