The Ocean Lobby

Ocean activism
Human behavior is the single most serious issue facing our oceans. Healthy oceans are essential for economic growth, food security and life on the planet. Yet, we overfish species faster than they can reproduce and dump the ocean full of waste including pesticides, mercury, fossil fuels and plastic. Behavior change is difficult. Awareness is the first step, but to make a timely impact we'll need to ask our governments to regulate better, thereby bringing conservation from the fringe to center stage. We need to make the Ocean Lobby more powerful than big business and partner when appropriate to advance a common conservation goal. Current laws are inadequate. Contacting the government and partnering with organizations that are taking the fight to the government will make a huge difference. -Marc Chafiian
