How can we create a global approach to protecting the oceans?

The oceans are critical to our survival as a species and to life on Earth as we know it. From a human perspective, the developing world gets 40% of its protein from the Sea, we use it for commerce: shipping, for travel, the seas are a potential international security problem and a massive part of the smuggling issue. There are many policies and ways in which the seas are regulated, but frequently they are ignored and ill-policed. We need a holistic agreement and method for bringing together the different bodies and initiatives to ensure global awareness and protection of the seas.

I really like this direction, Nathan. It is foundational in every sense of the word.
