Something that we strongly support at the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a comprehensive national ocean policy. In fact, Julie Packard, our executive director was on the team that produced the Pew Ocean Report back in 2003 that suggested this was a priority for the government.
Last year, the current administration announced an Ocean Policy Task force that would seek out all the facts and prepare an agenda for the President. You can support the task force today on our website at www.oceanaction.org
Tomorrow, January 13, you can also show your support by wearing blue for the oceans! Find our more at http://www.wearblueforoceans.org/If you live in one of 10 major cities, you can also attend an event or rally.
At SeaNotes, we try to bring you uplifting stories about the oceans. But this is the one time we will allow you to be blue for the oceans! Let us know if you do the blue!
