SPIRAL PACIFIC IS A FEDERAL NON-PROFIT 501(c)3 ALLIANCE DEDICATED TO GLOBAL MARINE CONSERVATION AND FINDING SOLUTIONS TO THE DEGRADATION OF THESE ESSENTIAL ECOSYSTEMS
TOKYO (Reuters) - Nearly a decade after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Japan’s government has decided to release over one million tonnes of contaminated water into the sea, media reports said on Friday, with a formal announcement expected to be made later this month.
Spiral Pacific is a team of scientists, educators, and film professionals working together to foster conservation of many threatened Pacific Ocean ecosystems. We are an independent transmedia non-profit corporation generating content that lives across multiple formats: print, television, and video. Our mission is to explore the intertwined ecosystems around this vast ocean basin and research several human-caused stressors that contribute to the downward spiral we are facing including overfishing, ocean acidification, the introduction of invasive species, and the marine debris issue. In our research, we highlight solutions enacted by the local communities around the Pacific Rim to address the decline in the overall health of the marine environment thus providing a roadmap as to how these solutions can be stepped up globally.
Our seasoned staff of educators incorporates these solutions to create unique and interactive STEAM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) curricula for middle and high school students. Source material stimulates critical thinking and encourages students to participate in the vital fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Research highlights the next generation of lucrative careers will require extensive education in these fields. Our ultimate goal is to educate and equip a new inclusive generation of ocean stewards.
Spiral Pacific supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs.) Also known as the Global Goals, they were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. The goals which Spiral Pacific was specifically chartered to accomplish are illustrated above.
