1,000 Ocean Actions Campaign

 

Marine Protected Areas

  • #DidYouKnow: As of 2014, Marine Protected Areas (MPA) covered just over 3% of #OurOcean. www.ourocean2016.org 
  • Marine protected areas in #OurOcean can boost economic activity by increasing fish populations and bolstering tourism. www.ourocean2016.org  
  • Marine protected areas are safe havens for fish, whales, dolphins, corals, etc. We need more #MPAs to protect #OurOcean. www.ourocean2016.org  

Climate and Ocean

  • #DidYouKnow: #OurOcean has absorbed ~30% of CO2 released into atmosphere since beginning of industrial revolution. www.ourocean2016.org
  • #OurOcean is 26% more acidic than in pre-industrial times = weak shells & weak coral reef skeletons. #ActOnClimate  www.ourocean2016.org
  • Sea ice & glaciers are melting. By end of 21st century #OurOcean is on track to rise at least 1-4 feet. #ActOnClimate www.ourocean2016.org

Sustainable Fisheries

  • #DidYouKnow: Over 3.1 billion people worldwide depend on #OurOcean for protein. www.ourocean2016.org
  • Illegal fishing catches billions of dollars of fish each year and is often part of larger criminal orgs. www.ourocean2016.org #OurOcean

Marine Pollution

  • #DidYouKnow: 80% of the world’s sewage enters #OurOcean without receiving proper treatment. www.ourocean2016.org
  • If our current pollution levels continue, by 2050 there will be more PLASTIC than FISH in #OurOcean. www.ourocean2016.org
  • By 2025 there could be 1 ton of plastic in #OurOcean for every 3 tons of fish! www.ourocean2016.org
  • Live in a landlocked area? What you do affects #OurOcean too! Debris and runoff in rivers ends up in the ocean. www.ourocean2016.org
