In the most biodiverse marine ecosystems in the world, SeaWeb's Asia Pacific program is strengthening voices for ocean conservation by bridging the worlds of marine science, journalism, and public policy. We work to amplify and clarify the messages of local scientists and ocean experts, and to connect journalists and decision-makers to ocean issues and specialists.

We envision an Asia Pacific region where all people will act on the belief that a healthy ocean is vital to human life and a sustainable future.

Update from the Hague, Day 2

Some photos for you:
Ellen Pikitch (Pew Institute for Ocean Science) and Wendy Jackson (CITES Secretariat) at the mixer.

These are US delegates - Laura Noguchi is on the right.

Andy speaking with John Hutton, the head of the UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre.
Andy used a lot of the slide and graphics we sent him, and he did a fantastic job. Overall, very successful event for sharing information. The opposition was there (talking throughtout the entire presentation) but thank goodness there was not a yelling match, like there was at the lunch event like this on Bangaii cardinalfish!

Celebrating a job well begun with Julia, who made all of this possible.
