Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the publication of a new story map, "Oceanic Blue
Carbon - How Marine Life Can Help to Mitigate Climate Change", by UN
Environment/GRID-Arendal. Oceanic blue carbon refers to the various ways
that marine life can capture and store carbon. Recognizing the role that
marine life plays in the carbon cycle is a potentially innovative and
important strategy for combating climate change. Several of these
mechanisms refer to ways in which marine mammals contribute towards carbon
storage and sequestration through their feeding and movement patterns.

The story map features a new video by cartoonist Jim Toomey - of Sherman's
Lagoon fame - in addition to an infographic and maps that present the
latest scientific data on oceanic blue carbon. The story map is available
here: url.grida.no/oceanicbc

kind regards,
