The Oceans Program at the Center for Biological Diversity
Oceans Program Center Biological Diversity
The Oceans Program of the Center for Biological Diversity defends marine species and habitat from overfishing and a host of other threats. Ocean waters cover three-quarters of the globe, a vast haven for diverse marine life. But the open oceans are also a barely regulated landscape. International laws to protect the high seas are not adequate to address threats such as large scale commercial fishing. Milestones of the Center’s Oceans program include shutting down the most destructive fisheries in the Pacific for endangered species; securing federal funding for white abalone and elkhorn and staghorn coral; forcing critical habitat protection for leatherback sea turtles and the endangered North Pacific right whale; filing a petition to regulate CO2 impacts on the ocean under the Clean Water Act; and achieving Endangered Species Act protections for the orca in Puget Sound, sea otter in Southwest Alaska, and beluga whales in the Cook Inlet in the Gulf of Alaska.

"We know the ocean as a natural system. We know too that beneath that surface lies the challenge of governance; like the land, the ocean too is a political system, equally complex and vital. But is not the ocean the ocean an economic system as well, a place of infinite value that can be parsed and understood for its invaluable contribution in goods and services toward global sustainability and survival?"

World Ocean Radio: Watermark Part 2
Watermark (Part 2)
About this episode: The global water crisis and the prospects for future water resources is forcing adjustments for how we measure the water that is used, how it is valued, and how (and to whom) it is allocated. In this second episode of a multi-part series on water, host Peter Neill will suggest that in order to understand how to value the water cycle and how it works in a time of climate change and unrestricted use, we will need to define new strategies for measurement and management.#WorldOceanRadio
