There is but one great ocean; all of those we think are separate flow together. It is ours to use and enjoy, to protect and conserve.

It gives us life and for many livelihood. It is a thing of lore, a thing of beauty. We use this ocean for commerce, for recreation, for sustenance. It supports far more systems of the earth than we even yet know. It is in more ways than one humankind's lifeblood.

And what affects one part of the ocean, affects it all.
