An Ocean Recovery Manifesto – a vision for restoring our seas by 2030
The ocean is the lifeblood of our planet, providing over half of the air we breathe, capturing 30% of CO2 and 90% of man-made heat, and providing a home to many iconic marine species. Yet it is at risk of suffocating from climate change, pollution, over-fishing and a lack of protection. Government are stepping up their international ambitions for ocean protection but to stand up on the world stage they must first deliver at home.
To achieve this, the Wildlife and Countryside Link Marine and Whales Groups are calling for a radical ocean recovery agenda to recover our oceans by 2030 to protect people and nature and climate.
