Our Ocean is connected to nearly all elements o human survival. 97% of Earth's water is in the ocean. The Ocean provides one half o the oxygen we breathe. If the ocean were a country, it would be the world's fifth largest economy. For us humans, the ocean is life. But the health of the ocean is in serious trouble. We are allowing some 10 million tonnes of plastic waste to enter the ocean every year. Threatening species, ecosystems and our own health. Climate change represents an existential threat to many oceans ecosystems species. We have lost one-fifth of all coral reefs and mangroves and nearly one third of all seagrass beds. The damage might be underwater and out of sight but the consequences are already affecting all of us. A threat to our ocean is a threat to our climate, our global economy and our food supply.
