Learn about our 2030 Conservation Strategy

We are connected to the ocean. We rely on it for food, water and clean energy. Two of every three breaths we take come from it. The ocean is also our first line of defence against climate change.

Pollution, overexploitation of resources and habitat destruction are pushing our ocean to the brink. And it is not just the whales, turtles, coral and salmon who pay the price. Our own health and well-being is at stake.

Fortunately, we have the power to rebuild a resilient and vibrant ocean. Together, we can shape a globally sustainable future – for us, our children and future generations. Our ten years starts now.
