The Ocean Project
To United Nations and World Government Leaders:
Help make a difference for our ocean planet!
- Whereas everyone on our planet is connected and affected by the oceans;
- Whereas the world's ocean covers 70% of our planet, yet less than 1% of our ocean habitat is protected;
- Whereas the ocean plays a critical role in maintaining the planet's ecosystems and is essential to human health and well being;
- Whereas it is critical to educate the public, and promote stewardship among children and adults alike;
- Whereas ocean environments around the world are collapsing,
primarily due to over-fishing, pollution, and unsustainable coastal
- Whereas the ocean's rich diversity of life belongs to all citizens of the world; and
- Whereas on June 8 there has been an unofficial celebration of the oceans around the world for 12 years...
