WWF’s presence at events like The Economist World Ocean Summit, the Our Ocean Conference in Chile and meetings of the World Economic Forum enabled our experts to directly engage policymakers and leaders from civil society and business. WWF messages are repeated by officials at the highest level. “Our economies, our livelihoods and our food all depend on our oceans,” said US President Obama via video to the conference in Chile. US Secretary of State Kerry emphasized the sea is acidifying faster than at any other point in history, and that one-third of fish stocks were overexploited. WWF Int’l President Yolanda Kakabadse met with Kerry and  discussed how to keep the ocean at the forefront of climate talks.
