How often do you see well reasoned, factual stories about our Northwest waters in the media?
SEA-Media brings you media about our Pacific Northwest waters: links to books, movies, art, music, blogs, and more. We specialize in highlighting independent media, but we include as much media as we can from all sources. We hope exploring this web site will help you better know our marine environment which is the overwhelming majority of our biosphere.
SEA-Media is a nonprofit, membership organization dedicated to increasing the profile of our marine environment in the media. This includes creating independent media productions about our watery world and using new media paradigms to gain much larger audiences for the really great relevant media already being produced by other organizations.
SEA-Media’s mission is to introduce the public to the Northeast Pacific Marine ecosystems, using all forms of media, for the purpose of strengthening the bond between people and the single largest influence on their environment: the ocean.
SEA-Media envisions a world where its citizens respect, understand, and protect the underwater worlds that border all lands, seeing the long term well-being of our marine ecosystem as an essential component of our own well-being.
The ocean is the largest single part of our ecosystem, and hence our health is inexorably tied to its health. Our ability to care for it depends on our ability to understand it and to be cautious in creating environmental changes that we don't understand. Public support is necessary for effective policy and behavioral changes. Independent, diverse, and responsible media is needed in order to gain meaningful public support. Pacific Northwest waters are vastly underrepresented in the media.
