The ocean covers 70% of our planet and accounts for 97% of the water on earth. It connects people, provides food and oxygen, regulates our climate by absorbing almost a quarter of the CO2 produced, and is home to a wide variety of species. 250,000 species discovered, when there are estimated to be between 2 and 5 million. So 9 out of 10 species have yet to be discovered.
But the ocean is in danger! Between global warming, plastic pollution, overfishing, loss of biodiversity and habitat destruction, the challenges are enormous.
Our ambassadors have decided to get involved with Pure Ocean to raise public awareness of the importance of protecting the ocean and marine biodiversity, and to publicize the foundation’s actions. Their role, both through their reputation and their activities, is to raise awareness, raise visibility and help support scientific projects.
Convinced that sport is a means of transmission, their commitment is essential to spreading values and convictions based on respect for nature.
