Whether our homes are near or far from the oceans, our lives depend on them.
Oceans supply half the oxygen we breathe, and provide food and livelihoods for more than a billion people. They are also home to a wondrous array of wild species, from tiny plankton to the biggest creature that’s ever existed – the blue whale.
But our oceans are in crisis.
Centuries of overuse and neglect threaten to leave us with a vast blue wasteland. It’s time to change the way we see our oceans – from places where we take what we want and dump what we don’t, to a shared resource of immense value and fragility.
