Save Our Seas: Make 40% of the Oceans into Marine Reserves!


Globally, our oceans are in deep trouble. Overfishing, pollution, and global warming are endangering the lives of marine creatures and their habitats. We’re also endangering our own lives if we don’t protect the oceans. We rely on the oceans for food, our livelihoods, and survival!

In order to protect the world’s oceans, portions have to be left alone. That’s where marine reserves come into the picture. A marine reserve is like putting a giant “Do Not Disturb” sign around an area of the ocean. These protected areas are so important to the future of our oceans—giving wildlife a safe haven free from danger.

Help today by signing our petition to set aside 40% of the world’s oceans as marine reserves. By convincing governments and the United Nations that marine reserves are critical to the oceans' future—we can put an end to global fisheries decline and habitat destruction.
