What is Ocean Literacy?

Most citizens are not aware of the full extent of the medical, economic, social, political and environmental importance of the sea. Many of us are not aware of how our day-to-day actions can have a cumulative effect on the health of the ocean – a necessary resource that must be protected for all life on the planet Earth to exist.

In other words, many citizens lack a sense of “Ocean Literacy” - an understanding of the ocean’s influence on us and our influence on the ocean.

An Ocean-Literate person:
• Understands the importance of the ocean to humankind
• Can communicate about the ocean in a meaningful way
• Is able to make informed and responsible decisions regarding the ocean and its resources
