“I always had a passion for water. Always amazed by its abundance and vital value to humankind and all living things. To only think that each drop of it is billions of years old, poured upon our planet from the collapsing stars in outer space is bewildering to say the least. To acknowledge that water is indeed the source of all life can only result in imperatively taking responsibility for its preservation.”
OCEANA is dedicated to protecting and restoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Its Vision is to make our oceans as rich, healthy, and abundant as they once were.
THE PROBLEM – The oceans are vast, but they are not immune to human influence. We have already altered or destroyed marine ecosystems and driven million-year-old species to the brink of extinction. According to a study published in Science, less than 4 percent of the oceans remain unaffected by human activity.
Oceana seeks to make our oceans more biodiverse and abundant by winning policy victories in the countries that govern much of the world’s marine life.
