Ocean Health Index receives mainstream press coverage

I've posted on the topic of the Ocean Health Index, which assesses the well-being of the world's seas,  before.  The collaborative project ranks oceans out of 100 depending in various factors including  As we know, the outlook is pretty dismal with our seas scoring an unsustainable average of just 65 out of 100.

Today this comment piece  published in the Guardian, UK caught my attention.  Greg Stone of Conservation International , which is involved in the Ocean Health Index project gives a clear overview of the aims and goals of the Ocean Heath Index.  

Although the content is nothing we haven't read before, I was really pleased to see that the project has gained some mainstream media coverage in the UK.
