Wear blue tomorrow!
If you live in the U.S., consider wearing something blue tomorrow to show your support for the National Ocean Policy the Obama Administration is developing. The policy has shown promise in that it adopts the principle of ecosystem-based management, although ASOC has found that the policy doesn't address how the administration will incorporate these national goals into its policies on Antarctica. Nevertheless, the broader goal of creating a unified policy for the ocean makes tremendous sense and is broadly supported by the ocean conservation community.
