Oceans generate half of the oxygen we breathe and at any given moment, they contain more than 97% of the world's water.

Oceans provide at least a sixth of the animal protein that people eat. Living Oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce climate change impacts.

Our seas are under immense pressure: too many fish are being taken out, too much rubbish is being thrown in and too little is being done to protect our precious wildlife.

Our vision is for Seas full of life where nature flourishes and people thrive.

To survive and prosper, we need healthy oceans. The diversity and productivity of the World's Oceans is a vital interest for humankind.

How much can you do to help Save our Marine Environment?

10 Things we can all do to help save our Oceans

To mind our Carbon footprint and reduce Energy Consumption

To make safe, sustainable Seafood choices

To use fewer plastic products

To help take care of our beaches

Not to purchase items that exploit Marine Life

To be an Ocean friendly Pet owner

To support organisations that work to protect our Oceans

To influence change in our communities

To travel the Oceans responsibly

To educate ourselves about Oceans and Marine Life

The Ocean is alive and needs a voice which is saying,

“Help me. I have nothing left to give. Enough is Enough.”

Even though the ocean is mighty and resilient, we cannot wait for the next generations. If we wait, there will be nothing left. We each have the power within ourselves to be the voice for the Ocean. To stand up for the future, we so desperately need a future with healthy, abundant Oceans.

Turning the tide starts with every single one of us. “The greatest lesson is understanding the inescapable truth that our fates are inextricably tied to nature and we are not separate. The sooner that people realise that we need to ACT NOW, the sooner we will see change happening.”

The time to ACT is NOW.
