Why a Wave of Change? Simple, because its time the international community brought change and protection to the high seas and January is the month to make that happen.

At the United Nations (UN) Rio+20 Earth Summit, governments committed to start a process towards a possible new ocean biodiversity treaty that would address the current lack of conservation measures for the high seas.

A series of meetings have been held with the final one scheduled for 20 - 23 January 2015.  During this meeting, governments will either give the go ahead for a crucial new Treaty negotiation to start – or not.

Leading up to this important meeting, the High Seas Alliance is reaching out to you to ask for your help in creating a Wave of Change on Twitter to demand that governments take a stand to protect the high seas at the UN in January.

The high seas is a vast area that makes up nearly two-thirds of our ocean and about 50% of our planet’s surface and currently falls outside of any country’s national jurisdiction; this means it’s the largest unprotected and lawless region on Earth.

We need to look forward.  It is critical that we protect the ecosystem that provides oxygen for every second breath we take and ensure a healthy and biodiversity-rich ocean for generations to come.
