Everyone is an Ocean stakeholder, because 50% of our Oxygen comes from Ocean algae. You don't have to be a diver, or a shark scientist, or coral farmer, or a mangrove farmer to need a healthy ocean.- George Cummings -
The UN is in an awareness battle it is the #1 problem, ignorance is universal everywhere I go. The close second biggest problem for the UN is providing individuals with behavior changes that they might be able to do to help SDG14. So many people are frustrated, hopelessly lost or hung up with this question;" What can I possible do to help solve the immense Ocean problems?
In June 2017 1,500 others and I were vetted, trained and empowered to be the voice of the Ocean and her creatures to the UN Ocean conference, we received 100s of workshop hours in SDG14 training over a five day dawn to dusk work week. As a recently inducted SDG14 Ocean Ambassador it is my sincere hope and desire for this document to expand your SDG14 knowledge of all things Ocean at the UN. Your role will be to help me, by you sharing this collection with anyone you know who breathes air.
Everyone is an Ocean stakeholder, because 50% of our Oxygen comes from Ocean algae. You don't have to be a diver, or a shark scientist, or coral farmer, or a mangrove farmer to need a healthy ocean. If every person knew all the variables of all the conservation problems, plus the reality of a very short timeline left to restore Ocean Health they too would agree with my colleagues there is no greater SINGLE source of life that impacts more lives than the Ocean, therefore it’s restoration is a global Priority.”
