Our blue planet is under threat

Now we have a chance to turn things around, by putting the most vulnerable and important parts of our oceans off-limits to destructive industries. Governments at the UN are starting work on a Global Ocean Treaty that will introduce laws to protect the oceans by creating sanctuaries. Scientists say sanctuaries should cover more than 30% of our oceans in order to strengthen them against the worst effects of climate change and protect wildlife. Our oceans sustain all life on Earth – now they need us to protect them. Sign the petition to support the creation of sanctuaries and to call on governments to agree on a strong global ocean treaty at the UN.
