Google Unveils Ocean Tool

In further proof that Google is taking over the world and that maybe it’s not such a bad thing, conservationists working with the ubiquitous search engine have unveiled (at the IUCN) a tool in Google Earth that lets you view protected marine areas and displays icons indicating sensitive areas of the world’s oceans.Plus, National Geographic unveiled a live, underwater feed of a coral reef near Belize in Central America, WildCam Belize Reef.I just took a gander at the WildCam — pretty nifty. Unfortunately, my computer is a bit slow for Google Earth — has anyone had a chance to check it out?
