(August 9, 2007 - New York) In its continued focus on marine conservation issues, Conservation magazine, a periodical published by the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB), features ten thought-provoking solutions to improve ocean protection as the cover story of the July-September issue. As a sponsor of Conservation, The Pew Institute for Ocean Science is proud to acknowledge four articles by Pew Fellows and Advisors in Marine Conservation, including Daniel Pauly, Tundi Agardy, Amanda Vincent, and Carl Safina and one by Pew Institute for Ocean Science Research Associate David Conover. The ideas expressed by the outstanding contributing marine experts range from promoting greater use of text messaging to broadening community involvement in ocean management and eliminating fuel subsidies for bottom trawlers on the high seas.
Dr. Ellen Pikitch, Executive Director of the Pew Institute for Ocean Science and Professor of Marine Biology and Fisheries at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School stated, "Conservation magazine's cover story on oceans could foster the innovative actions and initiatives desperately needed to protect oceans and the species that depend on them. It will take new approaches to restore the ocean's health. I'm pleased to see the Society for Conservation Biology devote significant attention to this issue for readers to consider in the vital work ahead."
The Pew Institute for Ocean Science is one of eight partners supporting Conservation, a sophisticated, readable, and practical magazine for people who want the latest news about conservation. Backed by some of the most influential organizations in the field, Conservation seeks to close the gap between science, practice, and policy through lively journalism and real-life case studies.
The mission of the Pew Institute for Ocean Science is to advance ocean conservation through science. Established by a generous multi-year grant from the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Pew Institute for Ocean Science is a major program of the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
