It is our responsibility as natural resource professionals to build stronger and
more relevant ways to connect the public and ourselves with the importance of
local, regional, and global aquatic resources
• Creative and relevant outreach efforts must engage people that are physically or
mentally separated from the natural environment to understand the critical
components that support all of us.
• Measures that allocate the quantity of resources used in the production, dis-
tribution, and consumption of products are excellent tools for understanding the
complexity of individual personal decisions.
