Our Oceans

What I want to do with this site is provide a personal portal for all things related to our oceans and ocean conservancy. As an avid scuba diver, I've come to love the ocean and everything living in it. Regardless of one's political or economic leaning, a clean ocean benefits us all. So, I intend to use this site to explore the myirad of oceanic topics and perhaps discover how I can personally do my part to keep our oceans awesome. Perhaps a few others that stumble on might find it useful too.

The sea, the great unifier, is man's only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: we are all in the same boat. -Jacques Cousteau
