Making fisheries 'sexy'
MetadataShow full item record
The Visit of Alexandra Cousteau has thrust Oceana Philippines, the two-year-old local office of environmental organization Oceana, into the spotlight. Cousteau was the special guest at a media forum on the recent exploratory expedition to Benham Rise, led by Dr. Hildie Maria Nacorda of University of the Philippines Los Baños School of Environmental Science and Management. Oceana was founded in 2001, and is the largest international environmental organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Instead of launching programs with indefinite outcomes, the group runs strategic, directed, science-based campaigns within limited time frames, with quantifiable outcomes.
