A world that is safe and healthy with vibrant oceans, is possible. And that’s why we are campaigning to end the flow of plastic into our oceans, ensuring stricter measures on overfishing and protecting our endangered marine life.
Part of our campaigning, is on calling on big corporations to act now and reduce their plastic footprint – they are at the heart of this mess. They must stop producing excessive single-use plastic packaging.
Less than 2 percent of the ocean is under protection and this is why we have to preserve and protect our ocean sanctuaries across the globe.
They help endangered species recover and give marine life a fighting chance to survive the rapid changes we are causing to the planet.
The way we treat the rest of our ocean—under protection or not—is just as important. Today, overfishing is the status quo, killing millions of marine animals every year, and human activity is disrupting the balance of marine ecosystems.
The impacts on humans are equally severe. Overfishing compromises food security and the livelihoods of fishing communities.
So, when and if you do buy seafood, make sure to ask questions about how it was caught and urge supermarkets and restaurants to ensure their seafood is ethical and sustainable. We want a better future for our oceans and the people that depend on them. You do, too, right?!
