PROTECTING THE OCEAN,
IS TO PROTECT LIFE

The ocean represents 71% of the earth’s surface and 97% of the space available for life. The planet’s true blue lung, it produces 50% of the Earth’s oxygen, more than all the world’s forests put together. It absorbs 25% of CO2 emissions.

Il connecte les humains et en nourrit directement 3,5 milliards. The ocean faces some of the greatest threats: climate change, acidification, pollution, destruction of habitats and biodiversity, over-fishing, etc.

There’s an urgent need for action. Our solution? Support ocean research!
