Walk The Walk To Keep The Ocean From Going Dark

Tim Crowley / Marine Photobank
The many threats to our ocean may seem as vast as its waters. And for those who don't have a constant view of its wonders, how the ocean is relevant to our daily lives may also seem obscure. Yet the ties between our own health and that of the ocean's are tightly intertwined, from the ocean helping to regulating our climate to providing more than half of our oxygen and at least a sixth of our animal protein. (See more about these connections in Ocean and Human Health).

Don't wait for the ocean to go dark before taking action. Show your committment by taking the Ocean Pledge.

We can all be custodians of the ocean and therefore benefit our own lives. Here are simple, effective ways to learn more and help protect our marine environments now and for future generations.

Be Informed and Educate Others

Learn about the threats to our marine environments through our Ocean News, Market Solutions, and Science Matters portals. Then let your students, classmates, children, neighbors or elected officials know. You can be a leader for the ocean in your community.
