1. Our ocean is the only one we have
We’ve only got one ocean and one chance to take care of it. What happens in this one part of the ocean impacts the entire ocean.
2. The ocean controls the climate & weather
It’s absorbing 93 percent of climate change heat. If it gets too warm, the ocean will lose its ability to protect us.
3. The ocean makes Earth home
Earth is only habitable because of the ocean. If it wasn’t hard at work stabilizing global temperatures, and producing the oxygen, water and food we need, living on Earth could be as difficult as living on Mars.
4. The ocean is home to most life on Earth
There are many fish, mammals and plants in the sea, and that works in our favor. The ocean is the planet’s largest carbon sink hole. How? When any ocean creature defecates or dies, the carbon is safely stored at the bottom of the ocean and is kept away from our atmosphere.
5. Your health depends on a healthy ocean
Beyond producing 70% of the oxygen we breathe, the ocean controls the weather and provides the water we drink and use to grow food. It’s also an integral part of the world economy and the livelihood of billions of people.
6. Our world is shaped by the ocean and ocean life
Our ocean is powerful enough to carve mountains and it is powerful enough to help save the world. Ocean systems work at an epic scale that can be used to solve huge environmental issues.
