Protect 30% of our Oceans

Today I received an email from Avaaz telling me that…
“Our oceans are collapsing, with vast disturbing dead areas reported to be expanding in the Pacific. But hope is also rising, with more ocean protected last year than ever before!

This week could decide whether collapse or conservation wins the race. Scientists say if we conserve 30% of our oceans, that will be enough to regenerate the rest — and this plan is actually on the table at the powerful World Conservation Congress, which starts today!

Countries with fishing lobbies like Japan are opposing the plan, so it’s up to us to bring a massive counterweight of people power. This could be the tipping point for our oceans — let’s send 1 million voices to save them straight into the summit.”

For those of you who read this blog please think about signing this, with plastic pollution a huge problem in our seas and for the wildlife and unwanted dumping, which we know a lot about off our little coast I think this message is very important. https://secure.avaaz.org/en/oceans_30_locredi/?ttCHBeb
