Our oceans are in peril. Over 98% of our oceans remain unprotected and vulnerable to degradation from pollution, over-fishing and climate change.

How you can help

Strong marine protected areas safeguard an entire ecosystem. Impacts from human activities are harming the ocean’s ability to sustain us. We are putting the important benefits we get from the oceans at risk, such as fresh seafood, breathable air and a livable climate. For every sea turtle, whale and fish trying to find a safe home, we seek to secure protection for 20% of the seas. (Photo: USFWS)
