The oceans are the heart of our planet. In the same way that the heartbeat make the blood circulate throughout the body, oceans connect people around the world, regardless of where they live. They also regulate the climate, they feed millions of people, produce oxygen, provide habitat for a variety of living things and give us medicines and many more resources. To ensure the health of our communities and future generations is essential that we look to the oceans with the same intensity as they take care of us.
Unfortunately, some human activities such as illegal fishing practices, unsustainable aquaculture, marine pollution and habitat destruction and exotic species and climate change and ocean acidification, have a negative impact on oceans and the seas.
