World leaders met in Jamaica earlier this month to discuss regulations that would enable corporations to begin deep-sea mining for profit. 

Before the close of the meeting, Costa Rica, Chile, and Spain all called on the UN to pause the push forward to mine the deep sea, highlighting concerns that the world is not in a position to move forward with the emerging industry without the necessary scientific information about the potential impacts. As more countries continue to speak out against this imminent environmental tragedy, we hope it will create a domino effect of worldwide support. That’s why action right now is so vital. Can you add your name to the official sign-on letter to stop deep-sea mining? We’re almost at our goal of 100,000 signatures ✊
