Seattle welcomes (back) a Wyland Whaling Wall! These murals are large and in prominent locations, catching the attention of those passing by. Hopefully, the images also generate conversations around the story of the mural, and the greater challenges facing our ocean as a whole.

I can’t emphasize how quick and easy this was to do. AGU has done the legwork in setting up the interface for taking action on important policy issues.

I challenge every scientist and educator to take some time in June to share their own ocean knowledge and experiences, and to share beyond the month of June. A one-month media blitz will not generate the change we need to see to protect, conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources.
