World Leaders: Protect 30% of our Oceans

To World Leaders:

As citizens from across the world, we are deeply concerned by the over exploitation of our oceans. We urge you to commit to protect at least 30% of national and international waters by 2030, with consideration for traditional use by indigenous groups and local communities. Our oceans are vital to all life on this planet and we must take action to reverse their decline before it’s too late.

World Leaders: Protect 30% of our Oceans

Our oceans are collapsing, with vast disturbing dead areas reported to be expanding in the Pacific. But hope is also rising, with more ocean protected last year than ever before!

This week could decide whether collapse or conservation wins the race. Scientists say if we conserve 30% of our oceans, that will be enough to regenerate the rest -- and this plan is actually on the table at the powerful World Conservation Congress, which starts today!

Countries with fishing lobbies like Japan are opposing the plan, so it's up to us to bring a massive counterweight of people power. This could be the tipping point for our oceans -- let's send 1 million voices to save them straight into the summit.
