from the introduction, ". . .The ocean, the State's estuaries, the Great Lakes, and the Hudson have played crucial roles in New York's history. Surely New York would be a very different state without them; yet much of the commitment to this heritage has been eroded. The State is neglecting some of our greatest natural resources and we all are the losers for it. The results of years of neglect and abuse of our natural resources and heritage are apparent. Fortunately, New York is equipped with the knowledge and resources not only to protect, but to effectively utilize the wealth of our coastal environments. But it will not come without an effort. . ."
