Marine Habitat Destruction


The ocean is essential for our very survival, yet we treat it with neglect.  Increasing CO2 levels are raising sea temperatures and resulting in ocean acidification. Fragile ecosystems like coral reefs are susceptible to the smallest climate change and pollution.  The impact of not having coral reefs is unimaginable.

Due to modern fishing methods we are catching fish at a rate that is unsustainable. 34% of species are currently below sustainable levels and nearly 60% are at, or close to their maximum sustainable yield. We have to address our global fisheries management processes and the devastating impact of many existing fishing practices.

Plastic Pollution

Did you know that we are currently allowing around 8 million tonnes of plastic to get into our oceans every year ? This plastic pollution is having a terrible impact on ocean wildlife, spreading through marine ecosystems, acting as a vector for pollutants and affecting our well-being, and potentially our health

“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”
