DEFYING OCEANíS END Presents a Global Business Plan for Ocean Conservation

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If humankind were given a mandate to do everything in our power to undermine
the earth's functioning, we could hardly do a better job than we have in the
past thirty years on the world's oceans, both by what we are putting into itó
millions of tons of trash and toxic materialsóand by what we are taking out of
itómillions of tons of wildlife. Yet only recently have we begun to understand
the scale of those impacts.

DEFYING OCEANíS END: AN AGENDA FOR ACTION, edited by Linda K. Glover and Sylvia
A. Earle and published by Island Press, is the result of an unprecedented
effort among the world's largest environmental organizations, scientists, the
business community, media, and international governments to address these
marine issues. It sets out a new agenda, one in which we approach marine
conservation differently and at a much larger scale than we have to date.

Chapters address:

* maintaining and restoring ecosystems
* ocean use planning
* economic incentives
* land-ocean interface
* ocean governance
* the unknown ocean

DEFYING OCEANíS END is a bold step in bringing the resources needed to bear on
this vast problem before it is too late. It offers a broad strategy, a
practical plan with priorities and costs, aimed at mobilizing the forces needed
to bring about a "sea change" of favorable attitudes, actions, and outcomes for
the oceansóand for all of us.
