Oceans cover 70% of the Earths’ surface, produce over 50% of the world’s oxygen, regulate our weather and climate patterns, and provides energy, food, medicine, and recreation. However, this invaluable shared resource is under threat due to human-induced ocean warming and acidification, expansion of oceanic dead zones, and unsustainable fishing. Safeguarding our common ocean for future generations is a shared responsibility and a matter of global urgency.
