Latest from World Ocean Radio: Who Advocates for the Ocean?

As vast and significant as the ocean is, there are few advocates at the scale required to make a difference in public awareness and action. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill discusses not only the prominent conservation-based NGOs, governmental organizations and individuals working toward a sustainable ocean, but also two less well-known advocates--very different in structure and assets yet working with comparable purpose.

Listen to the episode here and you can listen to previous episodes here. World Ocean Radio, a project of the W2O, is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays. Peter Neill, Director of the World Ocean Observatory (W2O) and host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects.
