         Ocean Literacy Principles
National Marine Sanctuary education team selected 3
essential principles to emphasize …
                          1. Earth has one big ocean
                             with many features.
                          6. The ocean and humans are
                             inextricably
                             interconnected.
                          7. The ocean is largely
                             unexplored.
