The World Ocean Observatory (W2O) offers a new model for ocean communications, aggregating comprehensive ocean information, consolidating educational resources, promoting other organizations’ programs and successes, amplifying the ocean message, and multiplying ocean engagement with an audience above and beyond that of any individual endeavor. We are a collective voice for many ocean voices, a central place of exchange of content and accomplishment, and the promoter of best practices, innovation, and effective connection to the global ocean community. Today we perform this task with energy, imagination, economy, and efficiency, reaching a significant audience worldwide through the free distribution of a full catalogue of ocean information. We do so at modest cost, with a conservative annual budget, and all programs funded by prescient donors and private foundations who understand our concept, see our results, and are committed to our future.
