The ocean covers 70% of our planet and represents 97% of the water on earth. It connects humans, provides food and oxygen, regulates our climate by absorbing nearly a quarter of the CO2 produced and shelters a great diversity of species. 250,000 species have been discovered, while it is estimated that there are between 2 and 5 million. So 9 out of 10 species still remain to be discovered. But the ocean is in danger! Between global warming, plastic pollution, overfishing, loss of biodiversity, destruction of habitats, 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. The role of the ambassadors, both through their fame and their activity, is to raise awareness, to give visibility and to contribute to the support of scientific projects.
