Combining love and knowledge to heal the ocean

Despite decades of management and conservation efforts, we have seen only limited success in rebuilding marine life and restoring ocean ecosystems from human-inflicted damage on a global scale. In this essay in the Theme Section ‘Marine Biology in a World of Wounds’ ( edited by G. Bearzi & K.I. Stergiou ) I suggest that we need to harness both our emotional (love) and rational (knowledge) sides to create a more powerful movement to heal the ocean and rebuild its abundance and diversity. Combining our emotional and rational sides can inspire our thinking and transform our actions in new, creative ways to affect wide-ranging and long-lasting change and transform our collective relationship with the ocean.
