Oceans cover 71 percent of the planet and are home to important species and ecosystems that we rely on for food, livelihoods, climate regulation and more. But the oceans need our help.
The oceans face a massive and growing threat from plastics. Carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels, unsustainable fishing methods and pollution is making our oceans more polluted.
We must limit our impact, carry a reusable water bottle, store food in disposable containers. Whether you enjoy diving, surfing, or relaxing on the beach, always clean up after yourself.
All life on Earth is connected to the ocean and its inhabitants.
The more you learn about the issues facing this vital system, the more you’ll want to help ensure its health then share that knowledge to educate and inspire others.
Continue your efforts to help save the oceans.
