The Alliance Ocean Literacy Reference Guide is a collection of ocean messages to help the public learn about the importance of our oceans to all living things. The fundamentals of these messages – the Essential Principles of Ocean Literacy - were developed by a consortium of some 100 members of the ocean sciences and education communities during an on-line workshop sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Geographic Society’s Ocean for Life Initiative, the National Marine Educators Association, and the Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence.
