State of the Sound In the lifetimes of our grandchildren, some of the most
dramatic predictions about climate change will blur
into reality. It’s already begun. Sea level increased
approximately eight inches between 1900 and 2008. 1
That rise is expected to triple by 2100 in the Puget

Small changes yield monumental impacts over time.

The steady acidification of coastal waters has
rendered habitats hostile to some of the very species
that define our region — from orcas to oysters. These
are just a few troubling statistics to illustrate the array
of problems threatening to fell entire ecosystems.

1 Adapting to Change: Climate Impacts and Innovation in Puget Sound,

University of Washington Climate Impacts Group

Cull insights from local
In producing this work, our goals were two-fold: 1)
listen and synthesize insights from community
communities members, and based on those themes 2) create a
guide that could be leveraged by PNW organizations to
communicate effectively with local audiences about the
health of coastal waters.

The best communication initiatives are grounded in


We undertook a quantitative and qualitative approach

to uncover broad insights that could be corroborated
by detail. We hope local groups can leverage the
analysis, quotes, and data captured herein to more
meaningfully connect with resident communities and
drive positive change.

See the Appendix (p. 41-43) for a deeper dive into our
approach and a profile of the audience surveyed.

Head Start
Why use this guide Use this guide to build smarter, public-facing campaigns
based on primary feedback from local audiences.

Consult it when:

Building a Messaging Campaign

+ Review survey results for inspiration about
themes that resonate with local audiences.
+ Read focus group quotes for insight into audience
vocabulary about ocean sustainability, and tailor
communication to that level of understanding.
+ Explore focus group quotes to align proposed
initiatives with issues important to local audiences.
+ Review the complete guide when conceptualizing a
campaign to compile a list of topics that may appeal
to local audiences.
Choosing a Distribution Strategy
+ Review how audiences say they prefer to consume
science content and distribute your content on
those channels.

6 Strategies Environmental Groups
Can Use to Communicate with
Local Audiences
1. Perceived Humans prioritize. Making critical choices about what
problems to tackle and when is baked into our

evolutionary fabric. It has helped us survive — run or
forage, rest or retreat.

Show audiences how today’s actions impact the

Takeaway: Make the need health of coastal waters tomorrow.

for change feel immediate

Focus group participants described the compulsion to
for audiences. act when confronted with critical situations.

“Every time there was an oil spill in the Gulf,

that's always kind of triggered me to want
to help do something to clean the water.”
— Gary

“I think if people got more actionable

information, like if you eat this kind of fish at
the current rate you're eating it, you won't
be able to in 15 years.”
— Rob

Immediate Action
“If there is a huge meteor that was speeding towards the earth,
someone's going to come up with something. That's the way
that humanity is, and unfortunately we're not quite to the point, I
feel, with our oceans that there is a pressing need, a tangible
thing that is going to happen. Slow change means that you
don't see the change.”
— Shannon, focus group participant

2. Attentional
Takeaway: Focus key Participants in our community listening sessions
mentioned feeling overwhelmed by the amount of critical
information and actions information covered in the news cycle. Many mentioned
for audiences. the inability to focus on environmental issues amid such
media saturation. Connect campaigns to audience

members’ instincts for self-preservation so that they cut
through other news coverage.

“I think that there's just so much going on in

our society nowadays...whether it be human
rights, race, guns. There's so much that just
has the spotlight right now.”
— Ashley

3. Firsthand A number of focus group participants described how

visualizing and interacting with the problem face-to-face

increases its relevance and acts as a powerful incentive
to take action.

Takeaway: Help audiences “When the people can see it, it becomes
confront the problem directly. more real. When you see the trash hitting
the rocks instead of just the water or maybe
some seaweed, then it becomes more of a
reality that something needs to be done. Or
even just seeing the rainbow colored oil
floating on the water. It makes people more

aware when they see it and then when they
can just keep going day-to-day and pretend
nothing's wrong.”— Gary

“I think because there isn't anything that's

been pressing that's happening to the
ocean and the Pacific Northwest right now,
it hasn't dominated the news. It's always
there. We didn't find like a huge garbage
barge outside of Vashon Island. There hasn't
been an oil spill outside of, like you know,
Alki beach, there hasn't been any. It's just
always been there.”
— Dwayne

Small Changes Add Up
“You're not going to see the tiny changes that are being made
every day. It's like when you are with someone every day, you
don't notice them aging...or gaining weight or losing weight, but
then when you don't see someone for a year or two, you notice
they've changed.”
— Ashley, focus group participant

4. Accountability
Takeaway: Form social We asked focus group members to reflect on instances
when they took action around a problem in their
networks of change communities. Participants described how existing
relationships with others taking social action compelled
them to partner and increase their own involvement. How
could the next generation of sustainability campaigns
leverage existing relationships within communities to

create a layer of social accountability to both friends and
the cause?

“People learn more about what was going

on because there are faces and names that
people know. And so if they see that this
person is supporting this issue and
vocalizing on it, people are more likely to
listen to that than someone trying to get my
signature out at Trader Joe's.”
— Ashley

Weight of Personal Outreach
“The impact that somebody calling somebody else on the
phone, and not texting on the phone, and saying, ‘Hey, there is
something that I care about, and I want you to care about it
too,’ is far more poignant than people standing outside trying to
get signatures on the Quad, more poignant than social media
campaigns. It's more poignant then literally any other form of
communication. I am huge advocate of personal
— Shannon, focus group participant

5. Accessibility
Takeaway: Bring volunteer
opportunities to your audience. Some focus group members described difficulty
getting involved with ocean sustainability initiatives
locally. Promotion facilitates awareness, and
awareness drives action.

One participant reflected on her recent volunteerism for
a local food bank:

“It wasn't my first choice of where I wanted

to volunteer, and it was just the easiest thing
to find. [...] I can list off like 10 or 20
different food banks in Seattle area, and I
don't know any ocean awareness, ocean
health volunteer things. So they're just
harder to find, unless you know where
you're looking.”
— Ashley

6. Convenience As several focus group participants recognized,

arguments related to sustainability and climate change

Takeaway: Enable can be polarizing for audiences.

community members to fold

action and change into their “When you try to make moral arguments
or economic arguments, you know it's
existing routine. going to cost ten trillion dollars to do
this, or we don't have the money for that,
or 150 scientists say this, well one doesn't
say it. It's easy for people to get lost in
the noise and make it ideological.”
— Rob

Summarize and communicate the simple lifestyle

adjustments community members can adopt to
contribute to meaningful change long-term.

“When it's easy, people will do it.”
— Shannon

consider framing it in relation to one of the
above benefits, so it is immediately relevant to
attitudes held by the local audience.

Respondents aged 18-49 identified “proximity to

recreational water sports/activities (boating, fishing,

How does life with an When asked about the impacts of irreversible ocean
damage, 11 out of 26 written answers by survey

and emotional/mental/spiritual health. Examples
mental well-being? below:

+ “A sense of being” — Seattle resident

+ “My heart and inner well being” — Mercer Island

+ “Spiritual and emotional devastation” — Seattle

“I've always been drawn to the ocean

because it gives me some perspective. It
lets you know a little bit about your place
in the universe when you look at
something so vast. And that comes from a
kid that's lived inland probably up until his
early twenties.”
— Rob, focus group participant

Life History
Significance of water in Both prompted and unprompted, focus group
participants invoked life experiences when discussing
oral autobiography their relationship with coastal waters. Frequently
mentioned were the impact of growing up around

water, seeing it as a source of life, and learning to
respect it from a young age.

“I remember there are pictures of me as

pre-schooler going and learning about
tide pools, and I remember going and
turning over rocks and catching small
crabs and looking at them and then

putting it back because that's what I was
taught to do.”
— Shannon

“I've grown up near water, I grew up in

Texas and the Gulf coast. I then moved to
Chicago on Lake Michigan, and now I've
moved here this last August. So I've always
been close to water and seeing the
different types of impact that we have on
the water.”
— Gary
Sense of Place
How coastal waters In three out of four focus group sessions, participants
raised the influence of coastal waters on local
shape identity identity. One resident even described use of the
Puget Sound in naming artifacts throughout the

community, from the Sounders (sports team) to the
Sounder Train (transportation).

“It's just inseparably linked with the sense

of identity of this, of this region,
mountains and water. [...] It's just the
Sound, the power of the ocean, and the
feeling of being inconsequential in the
face of such an enormous natural force.”
— Ann

Use This Finding

Audience members demonstrate a deep affinity
with water as evidenced by descriptions of place
and mental well-being in recounting their life
histories. Consider how to appeal to this human
desire to seek calm near water.

How Do Community Members
Describe the Health of Coastal
Waters & Resulting Impacts?
Coastal Health Focus group participants used previous experiences
to measure the health of Pacific Northwest waters.
While one long-time resident of Seattle, wrote down,
Disconnect between “It’s dirty,” another respondent who moved to the city
less than one year prior described coastal waters as
perception and reality

“healthy” when compared to other more polluted
waterways throughout the country.

“[Puget Sound] seems to be a healthy

body of water. I’ve been in Chicago with
near Lake Michigan and the canal, and
they made the river go south instead of
into Lake Michigan because they were
polluting the river so badly. So, they
decided to send it down to Missouri.”
— Gary

Pollution Focus group participants frequently mentioned the
distinction between the appearance of local waters
and the pollution impacting the ecosystem beneath
Seeing isn’t believing. the surface, articulating the difficulty community
members may have connecting with impacts that

aren’t immediately visible. This theme was heavily
discussed in every focus group session.

“People say, ‘It looks fine. What's wrong

with it?’ So even though people are right
there, and they see it all the time, there
isn't necessarily an awareness that
something could be wrong because you
can't necessarily see the pollution.”
— Ann

Use This Finding

When creating future sustainability campaigns,
consider how they will help audiences relate to
pollution and its effects that can’t be immediately
seen or counted.

words that best described how they feel about the health

of coastal waters. The most frequently selected attitudes

This research was made possible by a generous grant from the Nereus
Program, an international initiative working towards a sustainable future for
the ocean and the people who rely on it. This research was submitted to the
University of Washington Institutional Review Board. The study was
approved and determined exempt from further inquiry.

UW Communication Leadership graduate students named the resulting

year-long initiative Oceanlink Northwest. The effort included a range of
communication, outreach, and research projects, including this guide.

Approach To capture broad themes, we released a 26-question
survey via the platform SurveyMonkey. Of the 248
responses received, 240 were eligible for inclusion in
Quantify audience the analysis. Eight participants were excluded based
on age or state of residence. Respondents included in

SurveyMonkey. The survey was additionally promoted
through local email lists. Statistical significance of
survey data was not calculated.

Qualitative data was collected during a series of four

focus groups held between the dates March 2-4, 2018.
Each one-hour session was recorded and transcribed.
