NOAA: Year of the Ocean
Even hydrophobics will find something useful at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Year of the Ocean site. A "bouillabaisse" of fish information, it offers fact sheets on ocean exploration, runoff pollution and more. Ocean-lovers can track down regional ocean events and find out simple ways to protect the water supply. "Puffy the Puffer" leads kids through his activity book while teachers can download an ocean educator's guide (with Acrobat Reader). Washingtonpost.com's special report on the "Year of the Ocean" offers additional information.
