New National Ocean’s Council

Obama creates National Ocean’s Council for conservation.

In partial reaction to the spill in the Gulf, President Obama has created the nation’s first National Ocean’s Council to oversee the protection of the Great Lakes, the oceans, and the coasts across America. One of the primary objectives of the council is to protect the fragile aquatic ecosystems and to promote conservation efforts for America’s water. Joshua Reichert, managing director of the Pew Environment Group, was reported saying, “It's the first time that an administration has identified a series of laudable goals for managing the nation's marine environment.”
