Read The Ocean Foundation’s 71% Bulletin

Courtesy of The Ocean Foundation, Planet Earth.

The ocean makes half the world’s oxygen. 94% of life on earth is aquatic. Roughly half of the legal jurisdiction of the United States is underwater. Most of the items we use every day are shipped in containers across the ocean.

You know the ocean is important to your everyday life. In fact, the ocean is important to the very air you breathe.

The Ocean Foundation introduced a new free quarterly newsletter called the 71% Bulletin.

Each 71% Bulletin will have updates on The Ocean Foundation programs, initiatives and prioritized areas of interest, and The State of the Ocean address by Mark Spalding.

To obtain the newsletter, visit 71% Bulletin here.

Spalding has been the President of The Ocean Foundation since its founding 13 years ago. Under his leadership, it has grown exponentially from a US$200,000 to US$7 million/year budget, as he prioritized its focus on steering the human relationship with the sea to a brighter future through diverse, carefully chosen strategies and projects.

The Central California native has been involved with the Alaska Oceans Program, the Shipping Safety Partnership, the Loreto Bay Foundation, the St. Kitts Foundation, the Rockefeller Ocean Strategy, SeaGrass Grow, the Sargasso Sea Commission, the Pool of Experts for the United Nations World Ocean Assessment, the Center for the Blue Economy, and the Environmental Law and Civil Society Program and Journal of Environment and Development at University of California San Diego’s Graduate School of International Relations & Pacific Studies.

He has taught at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego's Muir College, UC Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy, and University of San Diego's School of Law.

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
