WHY SAVE THE OCEAN?
The oceans are the largest ecosystems on Earth, which means they are the Earth’s largest life support systems.
People need air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat, new medicines, a climate we can live in, beauty, inspiration and recreation. All products that keep you warm, safe, informed, and entertained — all of that comes from or be transported by the ocean.
Today we dump more than 8 million tons of plastic in the ocean!
To survive, we all need healthy oceans.
Oceans generate half of the oxygen people breathe.
More than 97% of the world’s water resides in oceans.
The living oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce the impact of climate change. Which means that healthy marine habitats like reefs, barrier islands, mangroves, and wetlands help protect coastal communities from the results of hurricanes and storm surges.
About 85% of fish caught is used for human consumption.
A portion of 150g of fish can provide up to 60% of an adult’s daily proteinrequirements as well as healthy fats like Omega 3.
There are over 100 million tons of fish and seafood eaten world-wide each year. Infact One third of the population depends on fish as a livley hood. And we dump more than 8 billion tons of plastic every year??!
What goes into the ocean goes into you.
There are garabage islands bigger that Texas floating around in our oceans under the surface.
The diversity and productivity of the world’s oceans is a vital interest for humankind! Whether you live on the coast or far from it, whether you eat seafood or not, you and the future of all those you love depends on healthy oceans. Everything is the Ocean.
We need to know we belong to something bigger than ourselves. We want a better future for those we care about.
