Help Protect Our Ocean

Our ocean covers almost three quarters of our planet.  No matter where we live, we all depend on our ocean for the food we eat and the air we breathe. 

Our ocean today is at grave risk – and it’s not happening by accident. Human activity is the cause. Harmful fishing practices, even illegal fishing;  giant garbage patches; hundreds of dead zones; and rising carbon dioxide levels – all of it threatens life under the sea. That’s the bad news. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way.  Governments, communities, and individuals can act now to reverse these trends. We can protect the ocean if we all start treating it like ‘our ocean.’

Wherever you live, you can help in some way.  We can make a healthier ocean, for this generation and those to come.  

What will you do to help protect our ocean?
