Make Our Ocean Safe

Our ocean is suffering from environmental crimes. Destructive fishing practices and overfishing cause tuna stocks to decline globally. Fisherfolks face slavery and human rights abuses whilst onboard fishing fleets. The global community – both governments and civil society alike – aim to address the issue by working on a Global Ocean Treaty. As individuals, you could take action by telling governments to protect our ocean!

A Sanctuary for Sea Creatures

The global ocean faces pressures from climate change, plastic pollution, industrial fishing, seabed mining, and other human activities. These result to losses in biodiversity and natural habitat.

We need stronger and effective local and international marine biodiversity protection mechanisms, such as ocean sanctuaries. These protect areas from human activities and allow marine life and ecosystem to recover. The ocean is our common heritage. It belongs to all of us and we all have the responsibility to protect it.

How you can help

From climate change to ocean acidification, overfishing and pollution, our oceans are under threat like never before. The science is clear: our oceans are in crisis. Now all we need is the political will to protect them. Governments are negotiating towards a Global Ocean Treaty at the UN that could pave the way for a network of ocean sanctuaries to protect at least a third of our oceans by 2030.
