Think back to Teddy Roosevelt's initiatives to promote nature and encourage land conservation in the 1920s - we are at that same point in time with regard to the oceans. As in, the first inning. No, make that top of the first inning. It is an exciting

A good article but how does one develop a new lexicon? What is needed is something catchy but succinct to both highlight and identify the many problems. Saying something about "Oceans for Life" is new and different, people have heard and grow weary of yet another war on something or to clean up ---- fill in the blank.

Thanks for this well written article. polluting the oceans is a self defeating action. Now we have to clean it up . We are killing it's population. Our oceans are water and life on this planet needs water to live. If we want life to continue ---we need to get busy and change our destructive habits.

Thank You for this great article. It would be nice if there were some way that all ships could be caught on satellite, but if the ships are able to turn off transponders it wouldn't work. Drones wouldn't work either as they can't travel that far and it would take too many. Maybe some powerful radar sites around the ocean could pick up ships signals and keep track of ships fishing in protected areas. We have a system off the east coast of Canada in place. Thanks Cher.
