When you envision your vacation do you picture yourself sitting next to litter or swimming with debris?  Probably not… We all want the fantasy we see in advertisements for resorts of pristine beaches, clear water and vibrant coral reefs. JetBlue and The Ocean Foundation are working together to help bring that dream a little closer to reality.

After working at The Ocean Foundation for a little over a year,  you would think I would be ready to dive right in…literally. But before I went underwater, I wondered if I had learned too much about the bad and the ugly to focus on all the good there was to see in the ocean. I got my answer quickly as my SCUBA instructor motioned for me to keep swimming instead of just floating enchanted by the marvels around me. My mouth would have been agape, except for you know, the whole breathing underwater thing.

When folks in the conservation community think of marine mammals whales typically top the list. But there are quite a few more marine mammals to celebrate this month. The Pinnipeds, or “fin footed” seals and sea lions; the marine Mustelids – otters, the wettest of their kin; the Sirenians which include the dugongs and manatees; and the polar bear, considered a marine mammal because they spend most of their life in or above water.

You have never seen a menhaden, but you have eaten one. Although no one sits down to a plate of these silvery, bug-eyed, foot-long fish at a seafood restaurant, menhaden travel through the human food chain mostly undetected in the bodies of other species, hidden in salmon, pork, onions, and many other foods.

June 5 is World Environment Day, a day to reaffirm that the health of natural resources and the health of human populations are one and the same.  Today we remember that we are part of a vast, complex, but not infinite, system.

In an unprecedented move, Mexican President Felipe Calderón withdrew the development permit for the 9,400 acre development of Cabo Cortez on the southern tip of Baja California. The land, adjacent to Cabo Pulmo National Marine Reserve, had become a regional – if not national cause – among ocean conservationists and environmentalists because of its proximity to the only intact coral reef in the Sea of Cortez.

Earlier this month, I was quoted in an article in the Washington Post “U.S. tightens fishing policy, setting 2012 catch limits for all managed species” by Juliet Eilperin (page A-1, January 8th 2012).

Fifteen years ago the hawksbill sea turtle in my hands would have been hog-tied, whisked hundreds of miles, slaughtered and carved into trinkets.

Today, it swam free.
