Happy Holidays from OpenChannels!

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

OpenChannels was officially launched in October 2012, and my how time flies! We have had over 27,000 unique visitors since then (over a thousand on one day alone!) and we would be nowhere without you, the lovely people who read these emails, check-in on a regular basis, and tell your friends about us. There are now 972 registered OpenChannels members just like you, and we'd love to break 1,000 before 2014. So while you're spreading holiday cheer this year, spread the word about OpenChannels as well. It would make us feel warm and fuzzy on the inside, because we know helping you, the amazing OpenChannels Community, helps the oceans. Happy holidays!!

Webinar on MPAs as Sentinel Sites by Steve Gittings of NOAA

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

After the holidays, join us for a webinar on MPAs as Sentinel Sites by Steve Gittings of NOAA. It will take place Thursday, January 9, 2014 at 1 pm EST / 10 am PDT / 6 pm GMT. “Sentinel sites” are areas with the capacity for sustained ocean observations to track environmental change. Within national marine sanctuaries, these observations are focused on ecological integrity and early warning indicators in order to inform decisions by resource managers. Monitoring data, characterization and applied research efforts are the backbone of the sentinel site program. Register at http://bit.ly/OCWebinar9.
