As the new US president was sworn in, we asked the Mission Blue community a simple question: what ocean issue should policy makers prioritize? After thousands of responses, we have just closed the survey and would like to share the results! The most important issue to the community was "Climate Change / Global Warming" followed by "Plastic Pollution / Marine Debris" and "Commercial Fishing". (Click the graphic below to make it larger and see all the results.)
We couldn't agree more! These are critical issues for our policy makers to focus on. Therefore, we're sending a team to the big UN Conference in New York City on World Oceans Day (June 8) to do Facebook Live video interviews with experts and policymakers, to spread the word about the links between ocean and climate, the scourge of plastic pollution, as well as the greater need for comprehensive fisheries management (also on the high seas!).
Our goal is to generate 1 million views specifically on these issues. We hope you tune in!
