Dedicated to raising awareness of ocean issues and protecting ocean ecosystems

The ocean is essential to our survival, without it life on earth cannot exist. We want to raise awareness of the threats our ocean is facing and in doing so help preserve this fragile resource for future generations

Just One Ocean was established to raise awareness of some of the issues affecting our ocean and ultimately our own survival. The three main threats to our oceans at this moment are rising water temperatures, overfishing and plastic pollution. However, there are many other issues that are also having a negative impact and need to be addressed.

Marine Habitat Destruction

The ocean is essential for our very survival, yet we treat it with neglect.  Fragile ecosystems like coral reefs are susceptible to the smallest climate change and pollution.  The impact of not having coral reefs is unimaginable.
