Tell Director Bloom: Support The Global Ocean Treaty!
Our blue planet is under threat. From climate change and plastics to mining and overfishing — the threats facing our oceans are growing bigger and more urgent day by day. Sign PetitionSign Petition
Our fate and the fate of our oceans are intimately connected. If ocean ecosystems continue to take this kind of damage year after year, the consequences will be profound and disastrous.
Now we have a chance to turn things around, by making the most vulnerable and important parts of our seas off-limits to destructive industries.
Right now, until the final negotiating session on March 23, 2020, governments are coming together at a United Nations Intergovernmental Conference to work on a Global Ocean Treaty. If they get it right, it'll open the door to a vast network of ocean sanctuaries, which could protect over a third of the world's seas.
The science tells us that to avoid the worst effects of climate change and safeguard wildlife, we need to protect at least 30% of our oceans by 2030.
Our oceans sustain all life on Earth — now they need us to protect them.
Add your name to tell Evan Bloom, Director of Ocean and Polar Affairs, to agree to a strong Global Ocean Treaty at the UN.
