World Ocean Radio provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects. World Ocean Radio, a project of the WORLD OCEAN OBSERVATORY, is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays available for syndicated use at no cost by college and community radio stations worldwide. Hosted by longtime host Peter Neill.

The WORLD OCEAN OBSERVATORY is dedicated to information, education and public discourse about the ocean defined as an integrated global social system. We believe that informed citizens worldwide can unite to sustain the ocean through mitigation and change of human behavior on land and sea. Our focus is the full spectrum of ocean issues: climate, fresh water, food, energy, trade, transportation, public health, finance, governance, security, recreation and culture. It is our belief that the sea connects all things.
