WHY THE OCEAN MATTERS
The ocean provides the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. Learn more about why the ocean matters to you.
THE AIR WE BREATHE
Every second breath you take comes from the ocean. No matter where you live, your life depends on the ocean. Beyond the breaths you take, the ocean plays a critical role in regulating our weather and climate. Did you know that changing ocean chemistry is threatening future generations?
THE FOOD WE EAT
Our ocean is nature’s farmers market. More than 2.6 billion people rely on the ocean as a primary source of protein. Healthy food from our ocean means a healthy planet.
THE WATER WE DRINK
Time and Time again, water turns to the ocean for renewal and purification to support life on earth. Our mission is a balanced, healthy ocean-free of the thrash and pollution that can ruin the water we depend on every day.
THE CREATURES WE LOVE
Like you, we are amazed and inspired by the stunning diversity of life in the ocean. Playful dolphins and otters, majestic sharks, powerful polar bears and glimmering schools of fish.
THE PLACES THAT INSPIRE US
Walking on a peaceful beach. Sailing with the wind at your back. Diving into the blue water. The ocean’s touch has inspired humans to create, explore and protect, and we’re working to save these special places. Help conserve by speaking out for the places you love.
JOIN THE FIGHT FOR A HEALTHY OCEAN
A healthy ocean means more than beautiful coasts and vibrant ocean wildlife. A healthy ocean supplies the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. If the ocean isn’t healthy, neither are we.
