Taking the ocean pledge


  • Randy Showstack


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is sponsoring an “ocean ambassadors pledge campaign” to encourage students and others to make a personal, long-term commitment to caring for the world's oceans.

The pledge campaign, which is part of NOAA's public awareness efforts for the International Year of the Ocean, calls for people to learn what they can about oceans, be considerate to ocean wildlife, conserve water, and implement other simple measures.
