Good news on World Oceans Day... President Obama proclaimed June 2012 to be National Oceans Month. He writes:
"President John F. Kennedy once told us, "We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea -- whether it is to sail or to watch it -- we are going back from whence we came." During National Oceans Month, let us celebrate our heritage as a seafaring Nation by instilling an ethic of good ocean stewardship in all Americans."
"For in the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught."
