The ocean makes life on Earth possible, and it needs our help.
Most people don’t realize the long list of benefits the ocean provides us, nor how much we are connected and dependent on it. Just to name a few things; the ocean produces 70 to 80% of the oxygen we breath, generates $21 trillion in ecosystem services each year, and provides the main source of protein for 1/4 of the world’s population. And these are just a few of the amazing functions it offers this planet’s 6+billion people.
In the past 50 years the health of the ocean has declined dramatically due to the major 5. That’s right, the major 5. There are five serious threats that are causing this havoc; over fishing, pollution, invasive species, habitat destruction, and climate change.
Actions must be taken to address these problems in order for the ocean to recover and become healthy once again.
