~ deliver ocean science messages in poignant ways designed to touch the heart and move people to action
~ engage youth by challenging them to transform information about our ocean crisis into performance and the creation of animated web images
~ provide a platform [a youth Internet blog] for global sharing of stories about our ocean fish crisis and reactions between kids in the Indo-Pacific Region and those in New York City

~ share the "how-to" steps of this low-cost, highly replicable project in hopes of inspiring "spin-offs" in local communities and cities around the world
~ become a "social-cultural tool" for celebration, community coalition building, and exchange of marine science/ecological sustainability concepts and information, especially in coastal communities in the Indo-Pacific region
