The ocean is the largest habitat on Earth, covering more than 70% of the planet's surface and is home to a wide range of species. The ocean is a crucial source of resources, and it plays a critical role in regulating the Earth's climate and weather patterns. Currently, the ocean is facing a variety of man-made threats, including pollution, habitat destruction, and overfishing, which is leading to a dramatic biodiversity loss.

Why is it so important to protect and restore our oceans?

Ocean habitats serve as vital ecosystems for a wide range of marine plant and animal species, playing a crucial role in maintaining biodiversity and delicate ecological balances. They play a critical role in mitigating climate change by acting as carbon sinks: coral reefs, for example, are estimated to sequester billions of tons of carbon annually. Moreover, ocean habitats are integral to water regulation by filtering and purifying seawater, maintaining water quality, and supporting marine ecosystems. Protecting and conserving these habitats is essential for the sustainability of marine ecosystems, the well-being of coastal communities, and the overall health of our planet’s oceans.

How can we best support our oceans?

Create/lobby for more marine protected areas

Marine protected areas provide safe spaces for marine biodiversity to flourish. By creating and lobbying for more of these protected areas, we can conserve fragile ecosystems, and promote the recovery of threatened species.

Protecting/restoring keystone species

The protection and restoration of keystone species are vital for the well-being of habitats. By ensuring their survival, we contribute to the preservation of biodiversity, promote ecological stability, and support the interconnected web of life.

Protecting/planting coral

By protecting and planting coral, we can combat the impacts of climate change, preserving marine biodiversity and protecting coastlines from erosion.
