The seas provide half of our oxygen, food for a billion people, and a home for some of the most spectacular wildlife on Earth. But the impacts of climate change, pollution and destructive industries mean they’re in more danger than ever. We urgently need to turn things around. Scientists have a new rescue plan for our oceans, and it’s up to all of us to make it happen.
From climate change and plastic pollution, to mining and overfishing, the threats facing our oceans get more urgent every day. The vast areas outside countries’ national waters are in the most danger, as they don’t have any proper protection – leaving whales, turtles and dolphins at risk.
Scientists have a new rescue plan for our oceans: create a global network of ocean sanctuaries that’d put millions of square kilometres off limits to destructive industries. But to make that happen, governments must agree on a strong Global Ocean Treaty at the UN. To do that, we need as many people as possible to show these decision-makers why ocean protection matters.
