Obama Proclamation On National Oceans Month 2015: This summer, millions of Americans will take in the beauty and natural splendor of our oceans, coasts, and Great Lakes. As destinations for recreation and tourism, these bodies of water rejuvenate our spirit and cultivate a love of our great outdoors. And no matter where you live or who you are, a healthy and thriving ocean is essential to all people all year. Our marine environments contribute to our food supply, bolster our economy, strengthen our national defense, and support important scientific research and innovation.

On June 8 we celebrated World Ocean Day - did you have a good one? We did!

World Ocean Day this year was all about inspiring the youth to make them aware of ocean conservation.

Downbelow got involved through Project AWARE’s Give Sharks A Chance petition, a coordinated effort by Project AWARE to collect 100,000 signatures by World Ocean Day to highlight the plight of sharks to world policy makers.

In April 2010, the Icelandic Volcano got me stuck in California where I was attending a Project AWARE global staff meeting to discuss the current state of our ocean planet and re-defined a clear, positive vision for the future. An epic journey back home and 14 months of team work later, I celebrated with my Project AWARE and PADI colleagues the re-launch of our organization with a new logo, website, mission, and strategies for ocean protection.
