Tell World Leaders to Protect 30% of the Ocean by 2030

130,571 signatures. Let’s get to 150K

Shockingly, less than 3% of the ocean is fully protected.

This means overfishing, bottom trawling, and other destructive activities continue to wreak havoc on the ocean.

Scientists say we must protect at least 30% of the ocean by 2030 to stabilize our climate, stop wildlife exploitation, and secure an equitable, healthy future for life everywhere.

In December 2022, at COP15, world leaders finally committed to put this urgent initiative in place. Now it’s time to hold them to their promise. Commitments are nothing without action.

Campaign goals

30% by 2030

30% of the ocean is highly protected, with all habitats protected equally.

No destructive activities

No bottom trawling, industrial fishing, or mining within protected areas.

Equitable participation

Full participation of Indigenous peoples, local communities, and artisanal fisheries.
