What if we treated our oceans like they matter?

At the moment, the vast majority of our oceans are unprotected. In the High Seas, those areas beyond national jurisdiction, just 1% are fully protected. And at home the situation’s not much better. Scientists tell us we need to protect 30% of global oceans by 2030 in order to fight climate change, safeguard fish stocks and allow our oceans to thrive – in all of their wonderful diversity.

Together with leading academics from the University of Oxford and the University of York, we’ve put together a plan for how we do just that – and create a network of sanctuaries across our blue planet.
