The ocean is complicated and diverse. Yet thanks to peripatetic ocean advocate Wallace J. Nichols, the blue marble has become a symbol for better understanding the ocean as an essential element in our lives. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will share his practice of carrying blue marbles with him wherever he goes, gifting them to new friends, thereby developing an understanding that an acceptance of the blue marble creates a shared responsibility for the ocean future.
You can carry blue marbles, too. Check out the Blue Marble Project today.
