Pollution, overcrowding and climate change have damaged the environment and endangered traditional livelihoods. But under the World Bank’s Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) project, communities along Morocco’s Mediterranean coast are earning new sources of income through a series of inter-connected projects – that are also helping protect the fragile ecosystem.

Here is IPCC report, Summary for Policy Makers on Chapter Six, Oceans. (Update of April 2, 2014)
Inspired by the launch of the World Resources Institute's (WRI) Global Forest Watch, Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv explores the concept of an Oceans Advocacy platform addressing the age old question, How Many fishes in the Sea, by bringing together oceans advocates in one spot and with access to databases, research, maps, voices of leaders and experts, including those proponents of a circular economy. A whole systems approach to problem solving - a sustainability awareness perspective.
The goals and objectives of the OceansAdvocacy.com are detailed in the printed presentation available here. A companion paper, On the Importance of Search: What EarthSayers.tv is Teaching Me is available here.

A discussion of sustainability and its meaning by marine ecologist and conservationist, Dr. Stephen Palumbi. In 2002, Professor Palumbi moved his laboratory from Harvard University to Stanford University's Hopkins Marine Station, where he is now the Director of the station.
Ecosystems remain productive when used sustainably. Sustainable ecosystems are able to continually create resources without eroding the health of the ecosystem. Taking resources faster than they are made, or when their destruction exceeds regrowth, decays ecosystem health and makes it less productive. Several elements interact to determine ecosystem sustainablity.
Why preserve sustainability?
Ecosystems are sustainable when we balance the rates of removal and replacement. Sustainable ecosystems provide resources and services people rely on, such as:
-food and other income
-maintaining ecosystem health

Speed of glaciers march to the sea is tripling!
On the Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier -- one of Greenland's largest ice fields -- scientists measure the movement of the ice sheet as it transports frozen water to the ocean. They discover that the speed of the glacier's march to the sea has tripled in just ten years. Alarm bells sound because at the current melt rate, within a few decades rising seas will have a profound effect on the low-lying countries of the world. January 20, 2012 uploaded. Gordon Hamilton is a glaciologist working on ice sheet dynamics, and the role ice sheets play in modulating global sea levels.
Dan Pingaro is the Executive Director of Sailors for the Sea (sailingsforthesea.org), the only ocean conservation nonprofit focused on the sailing and boating community. In this interview he talks about the Clean Regatta Program at the America's Cup races held this last September 2013 in San Francisco, California.
Since July 2011, Sailors for the Sea (Newport, RI) has worked with the America's Cup Event Authority to support the vision and plan of delivering a model sustainability sporting event. In October Sailors for the Sea awarded the 34th America's Cup their highest level Clean Regattas certification!
Dan was interviewed by Ruth Ann Barrett with support from videographer, David Okimoto of EarthSayers.tv, Voices of Sustainability at the America's Cup Finals in San Francisco, September 10, 2013.
WWF's Global Marine Programme is working to increase international attention for the conservation of vast expanses of ocean, and immediately protect the high seas. Around 64% of the oceans - an area covering half the planet - lie beyond the national jurisdiction of any country. Known as the high seas, these international waters are open-access common areas for everyone. For more information visit panda.org/highseas
