"As conservation organizations begin to expand their focus from land issues to include a major focus on preservation of the sea, it is increasingly apparent that we have to approach marine conservation differently and at a much larger scale than we have to date. What's also clear is that the magnitude and immediacy of the growing ocean concerns are such that no one organization can handle the job alone." "Defying Ocean's End is the result of an unprecedented effort among the world's largest environmental organizations, scientists, the business community, media and international governments to address these marine issues. In May/June 2003, in the culmination of a year-long effort, they met specifically to develop a comprehensive and achievable agenda to reverse the decline in health of the world's ocean." "Defying Ocean's End is a step in bringing the needed resources to bear on this vast problem before it is too late. It offers a broad strategy, a practical plan with priorities and costs, aimed at mobilizing the forces needed to bring about a "sea change" of favorable attitudes, actions and outcomes for the ocean - and for all of us." --Book Jacket.
