Oceans at WWF

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.
