About This Collection

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.

About OceansAdvocacy Concept

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.
