Most people may be aware that there are challenges surrounding our oceans but they cannot name the key issues. This lack of knowledge creates an opportunity for entities that make their profits by exploiting nature.
With millions of tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram posts and news articles speeding by per minute in people’s feeds – It is hard to discern the facts from fiction. After scrolling through the many posts available one may not know how to identify which news outlets and news stories are trustworthy and reliable.
Why We Care
Knowledge is power. If we educate people about the crucial issues surrounding our marine environments, they can in turn become informed advocates. They will be prepared to contribute to conservation efforts and speak against the current climate of environmental protection rollbacks by contacting their elected representatives. Informed people feel a sense of ownership and can help spread awareness to their communities, online and offline, that “it’s your ocean, do something about it.”
What Sea Save is Doing
Week in Review – Every week we round up all the latest ocean-related news stories, summarize and consolidate. This collective, well-vetted publication “The Ocean Week in Review” raises awareness in an increasingly noisy and fast-paced world. We believe that informed advocates are best positioned to make a difference.
Social Media Outreach
No one can deny the power of social media. 80% of millennials get their news from social media. More than 90% of people consume their news digitally. Sea Save Foundation wants to influence the conversation with the key issues that matter. We use social media to post curated content from photos, videos and news articles highlighting what is going in the marine world.
