STRONGLY PROTECT 30% OF THE OCEAN BY 2030

Today the greatest threat to our planet is climate change. If we don’t take action now, the collapse of civilisation and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon. The ocean drives climate and absorbs carbon – it is our planet’s life support system. On top of that, overfishing has decimated the ocean; 60% of fisheries have collapsed, half the coral reefs have died and pollution fills our seas.   

The ocean needs safe havens where it can replenish and fortify itself against climate change, where fish can make more fish - healthy ecosystems to mitigate all the pressures that we've put on it.  That means strongly protecting at least 30% of the ocean by 2030, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, coastal to high seas areas and everywhere in between.
