About This Website

As a result of a United Nations General Assembly resolution passed in December 2008, World Oceans Day is celebrated on June 8th each year. This annual event spurred the creation of a special collections around our oceans and the efforts being made in conservation ranging from pollution to habitat restoration to fishing and fisheries.

The special collection continues to grow along with Plastic in Our Oceans and 1Water, with a focus on the challenge of providing clean drinking water to the world population.

Saving Indonesia's Most Bio-diverse Ecosystems by Andrew Miner

 

The Last Resort: The fight to preserve Indonesia's most important tropical paradise

When Andrew Miners first arrived in the Indonesian island village Babitim he was struck by two things: the tropical paradise surrounding him, and the corpses of the mutilated sharks strewn around the beach.

Now Andrew's efforts have been fulfilled as "the worlds most bio-diverse marine habitat" is officially protected by a 425 sq/km "no-take zone", barring anybody but locals to fish inside the perimeter. Featuring astounding underwater footage of marine wildlife set against the brutal realities on board the shark-trawlers, conservationists and natives cooperate to create a model for ocean preservation that "could inform the way we manage oceans around the rest of the world." See Misool Eco Resort.
