UNEP has partnered with syndicated cartoonist Jim Toomey to bring you this latest in a series of ocean videos, about the true value of our ocean.
2-minute PSA about the uncounted economic benefits of the oceans. Oceans are not just about the seafood industry. The ocean provides transportation, tourism and recreation, as well as renewable energy, and key ingredients for pharmaceuticals. But what most people don't know is that oceans also provide a significant number of other benefits that don't even get counted.
The "Two Minutes on Oceans with Jim Toomey" video series uses animation and humor to explain complex scientific issues in simple terms to the general public. The series was produced as a partnership between nationally syndicated cartoonist, Jim Toomey, and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
