Canada’s Oceans: Toward 2020

“The sea, the great unifier, is man’s only hope.
Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning:
we are all in the same boat.” – Jacques Yves Cousteau

So this is going on right now at the Royal Ontario Museum, with a topic near and dear to my heart:

Canada’s Oceans Symposium: Towards 2020

“Join the legacy of nurturing discovery as we work towards starting conversations about the future of our waters. Lead Canada’s efforts on ocean conservation with the Royal Ontario Museum.

Join leading ocean scientists, storytellers, Indigenous leaders and government stakeholders as they look towards 2020 in this compelling conference exploring the status of Canada’s marine conservation programs, and our role in protecting the oceans that sustain us.”

Keynote Speakers: Alexandra Cousteau and Mandy-Rae Krack, “united as strong women deeply in love with the oceans and committed to their protection, the pair will provide engaging, timely, and complementary talks.”

holds one in its net of wonder forever.”

    1. Oh I know, Andrea, it breaks my heart what is happening. Our beautiful earth and wonderful oceans are being treated like garbage dumps in this throwaway society. I can’t even think about the many species that are endangered or already extinct. 😦

  1. Great post about the oceans. Jacques Cousteau got it right as someone like him would.
    Ocean a great unifier and once you are in its spell it won’t go.
    An important work to save our oceans from choking with contamination, leave it alive and free.
