    This summer we are revisiting some of our favorite World Ocean Radio episodes that highlight optimism in ocean news, science and advocacy. In this episode we discuss the need for more funding and energy directed toward the still largely unknown ocean, and the importance of scientific endeavor and observation, and we highlight the General Bathymetric Chart for the Oceans (GEBCO), a project dedicated to completing the full mapping of the world ocean by 2030.
