The UN Seahorse in Japan!|
Commemorating the Year of the Ocean
PROTECTION STARTS WITH AWARENESS
PEOPLE MUST BE INFORMED ABOUT THE OCEANS
and so ...
The UN Seahorse is a virtual marine research ship circumnavigating the world from one virtual port of call to another on the internet. It has the twin objective of (1) highlighting issues related to oceans in this International Year of the Ocean and (2) to highlight coastal, marine and ocean issues related to the ports that it calls on, and country/region served by the port.
"The virtual research vessel UN SEAHORSE ... serves all people in new way. We have to protect the oceans as the source of all life. How can people protect anything if they don't know what they are actually protecting. That is why the UN SEAHORSE's mission became to conduct research and help provide information and education on the oceans to all people on the globe ... " - OCEAN'98
The UN Seahorse is unique in that it brings together committed individuals and organizations over the Internet. It works as a focal point around which activities are being carried out to educate, activate and celebrate the Oceans as a binder of humanity.
The UN Seahorse is modelled after a real marine research ships called the "Hr. Ms Tydeman" of the Royal Dutch Navy.
