The Advertising Council in collaboration with the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation (NMSF), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. Department of Interior, and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, announced today the launch of a new series of public service advertisements (PSAs) designed to raise awareness among all Americans about the health of the oceans.
The campaign launch comes the same day that NOAA issues a report stating that half the coral reef ecosystems under United States jurisdiction are considered by scientists to be in "poor" or "fair" condition and that marine debris is a significant contributor to that decline.
More than half of the nation's population lives along the coast, while many others visit the ocean each year. Yet, few Americans are aware that the health of our oceans is currently at risk; nor do they realize that they have a significant and vital role to play in keeping the oceans clean.
