Oceana had a successful year in 2014 working to protect the world’s oceans: Thanks in part to our campaign work, President Obama established the first-ever Task Force on Combating Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing and Seafood Fraud, which recently released robust recommendations, the National Marine Fisheries Service announced emergency protections for endangered sperm whales from the California swordfish and thresher shark drift gillnet fishery, and we launched new campaigns in the Philippines and in Brazil. As we move into another year advocating for our oceans, we will continue to expand our campaigns in 2015 in order to truly be able to save the oceans and feed the world.
To accommodate Oceana’s new campaigns, we have updated our websites. Now, when you visit Oceana.org, you will be able to easily visit our campaigns in each country we work in. We have also created an international site that will feature and highlight Oceana’s work around the world. And our sites are now “responsive”—meaning that they should be more readable and functional on your smart phones and tablets.
We have also refreshed Oceana’s logo, and hope you like it as much as we do. The new logo will be phased into Oceana’s printed materials and signage in 2015. Like the new websites, it also works well on mobile platforms.
