If the ocean suffocates, we suffocate.
So here’s what we’re doing to stop this from happening – and how you can help.
From rising sea levels and soaring temperatures to dying habitats, the ocean is bearing the full brunt of human-induced climate change. But as the world’s largest carbon sink, it’s also our best chance to reverse the climate crisis if we treat it right. We don’t have long before the damage is irreparable. Let’s turn this around…
What we’re doing to help tackle the climate emergency
Overfishing, plastic pollution, and excessive chemical and sewage discharge are all destroying the ocean’s ability to absorb and reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide, increasing the planet’s warming and the intensity of the emergency we face. Through our network of Ocean Activists, we ensure that the ocean is represented within efforts to tackle the climate crisis. We raise awareness of the effect climate change is having on the ocean, and champion the ocean’s role as a key tool in addressing climate change. We have also achieved carbon net zero status as a charity and are constantly looking for ways we can reduce our own carbon omissions.
The ocean’s voice is now being heard in the climate emergency – but this is just the beginning. We demand the UK becomes net zero by 2030, and cleaning up the ocean is a huge factor in achieving that.
