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 is a UK registered conservation charity established to promote research and 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 over fishing, plastic pollution and habitat destruction through things like rising sea temperatures and pollution.  However, there are many other issues that are also having a negative impact and need to be addressed.


Plastic Pollution

Did you know that we are currently allowing around 8 million tonnes of plastic to get into our oceans every year and it’s having a terrible impact on ocean wildlife, the environment, our well-being and ultimately our health?


“With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you are connected to the sea. No matter where you live

Dr Sylvia Earle

We are removing fish from our oceans at an unsustainable rate.  If we don’t reduce it our fish stocks are going to run out and some species may become extinct


Over Fishing

“The whole of the eco systems of the world are based on the healthy ocean and if that part of the planet becomes dysfunctional and goes wrong, then the whole of life on this planet will suffer”

Sir David Attenborough

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.


“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow, by evading it today”

Abraham Lincoln
