From the deep sea, to coastal waters or the furthest reaches of the icy polar oceans, our damaging footprints are everywhere. We need to defend the ocean’s capacity to produce oxygen, sequester carbon and provide food and livelihoods for billions of people.
We need to RISE UP!
There’s no time to lose. Scientists warn we have until 2030 to take action to stop us crossing the 1.5C degree warming danger-line. The choices we make now are critical for the health of our ocean and our own future. 2020 is the year the world’s governments must agree to unprecedented, bold and fair actions that will set the ocean on a course to recovery by 2030. 2020 is when we need to RISE UP and build a strong united wave of action.
We joined the RISE UP initiative to restore ocean life and our application has been accepted!
