David Campbell MarineBio Founder/Director >-<ºº>-< ~~~ Join the MarineBio Conservation Society and help us continue to share the wonders of the ocean inspiring conservation, education, research, and a sea ethic. ~~~
Extending a sea ethic would mean recognizing the ocean’s importance to the continued existence of life on our planet and to human futures. From this recognition would flow an appropriate sense of moral imperative, commitment, and urgency—urgency toward ending overfishing and wasteful bycatch and aggressively rebuilding depleted ocean wildlife populations, stabilizing human effects on world climate, slowing habitat destruction, stemming global transport and accidental introduction of "alien" species, curbing the flow of contaminants and trash, developing sustainable seafood farming, cultivating an informed approach to the seafood marketplace, and implementing networks of protected areas in the sea. - Dr. Carl Safina

If you think Education is expensive, try Ignorance. "The inhabitants of the sea have much to teach us." ~Wyland "I have slipped the bonds of Earth to dance with dolphins." ~Wyland "If human civilization is going to invade the waters of the earth, then let it be first of all to carry a message of respect." ~ Jacques Cousteau NOSB: A great way for high schoolers to learn about the oceans. A whale killed a dolphin but he was acquitted because he didn't do it on porpoise.
