Why is our ocean at risk?

In many parts of the world, the ocean is headed for a collapse. What this means is simple – the way we exploit seas and coastal areas destroys not only their diversity, but also their ability to meet our most basic needs.

Climate change is worsening this process. As fish stocks crash and coral reefs die off, millions of people who depend on the ocean are at risk of losing their only source of income.
