Hi All!

Join us in spreading the news - The launch of the Canadian Ocean Awareness
Student Network (COAStNet) <http://canadianoceans.ca/>.  The mission of
COAStNet is to unite Canadian students and researchers in a network to
enhance the communication of ocean science and to promote evidence-based
ocean policy that ensures healthy and sustainable oceans.

Take a few minutes to explore our new COAStNet website
<http://canadianoceans.ca/>. It features blog posts, a marine research and
marine policy video library, ocean-related research podcasts, and will
provide links to related websites, organizations, and career websites. And
this is just the beginning - we’d love to see this website and network grow
to become a hub for people to find even MORE resources, and help
communicate the cool and exciting research happening from coast to coast
(to coast).  This is a student-run network, so we need other researchers to
help us build up this platform and share their exciting work widely.

To get involved in the network, you can:

   -

   Explore and bookmark the COAStNet website <http://canadianoceans.ca/>
   -

   Watch <http://canadianoceans.ca/videos/>, share or create a short video
   <http://canadianoceans.ca/submit-a-video/> about your research or
   Canadian marine science or policy in general
   -

   Listen to <http://canadianoceans.ca/videos/podcasts/>, or create and upload
   a podcast <http://canadianoceans.ca/submit-a-video/>

enthusiasts across the country (and beyond).
