For life on earth to thrive, the ocean must be wild, not barren.
So here’s what we’re doing and how you can help.
From harmful overfishing to the exploitation of marine resources, dangerous sea temperature rises and even individual water users’ carelessness, the ocean is struggling to survive in the face of humanity’s actions. Plummeting biodiversity and disappearing habitats are irrevocably transforming the ocean. The situation is catastrophic. But recovery is possible if we act together, now…
What we’re doing to help with Ocean Recovery
Surfers Against Sewage are here to add voice and value to the work already being done by experts in Ocean Recovery. We connect the public with the science, raising awareness of the link between ocean health and human health to drive action and maximise impact. From reports that show the scale of the problem to supporting on the delivery of the Ocean Recovery Manifesto, we add our clout and conviction to the cause however we can.
We work really closly with other NGOs such as the Marine Conservation Society, WWF, the National Trust, Greenpeace, IFM and ZSL as part of the Wildlife and Countryside LINK Marine Group, dedicated to marine restoration.
But as long as the ocean continues to be savaged by human activity, there’s work to be done. We demand 30% of the ocean and all UK Marine Protected Areas are highly protected by 2030, and we need your voice, energy and enthusiasm to make it happen.
