The TerraMar Project and OceanAMP form Partnership: Ocean Conservation Meets Journalism 3.0
BERLIN and NEW YORK, May 21, 2015 – OceanAMP and The TerraMar Project announced a new partnership today to unite their efforts to save the seas by delivering exciting new content to an even wider audience and bridging the divide across an ocean. The alliance brings OceanAMP’s exciting, original ocean stories and OceanRadio to TerraMar’s daily digital newspaper, The Daily Catch.
OceanAMP is a blogmagazine that writes for ocean-minded people. OceanAMP presents original, independently researched “360° Ocean Stories” to view, listen to and read on OceanRadio – a podcast for and about the oceans.
The TerraMar Project is on a mission to build a global community to give a voice to the least explored, most ignored part of the planet—the high seas. Comprising some 45% of the globe, the high seas represent the largest ecosystem on earth as well as one of the least governed. The TerraMar Project is diligently working to urge the United Nations to adopt a standalone Sustainable Development Goal for the ocean in their post-2015 agenda.
This new collaboration between OceanAMP and The TerraMar Project will cross-pollinate content concerning the ocean to each other’s communities and serve to expand the reach of their respective efforts. “OceanAMP is a new, exciting platform that provides incredibly engaging content that both the most devoted ocean enthusiast and hard, crusty landlubber will find intriguing,” explains Rob Foos, TerraMar’s Director of Development. “We’re thrilled to feature OceanAMP’s stories in The Daily Catch and look forward to reaching new audiences.”
“The oceans and seas concern all of us, whether we live in the city or beside the beach,” says Anja Medau, founder of OceanAMP. “My dream is to create a sustainable, entertaining international ocean magazine as well as a global Online OceanRadio, and The TerraMar Project is bringing me one step closer to making my dream a reality.”
