launching of Ocean Ambassadors set Aug. 11
an information and education Internet campaign for coastal and marine
conservation and management that opened recently on this site, will be
launched formally on August 11 at the Filipinas Heritage Library, Makati
Ave., Makati City. The campaign uses highly migratory marine animals,
including sea turtles, whales,
dolphins and migratory
sea and wading birds, and endangered species such as the dugong,
as "Ocean Ambassadors" to highlight its message that the world's
oceans are but one big ecosystem, and that the loss of one resource in
one part of the sea can have repercussions on a global scale.
