There's a reason Earth appears as a blue marble from space: Our planet is 71% ocean. Life started in the ocean 3.5 billion years ago and its health is clearly critical to all life today. From estuary and coastal restoration to sustainable fisheries and marine life conservation, there is a sea of stories connecting ocean protection to global climate change. Our panelists will discuss the latest United Nations developments in ocean policies and the U.S.'s role and response, as well as offer tips on how to cover ocean-based solutions to climate change.
