Why you're doing this
The UK seas are an incredible ecosystem, that provide thousands of jobs, food, clean energy, awe-inspiring nature and so much more. Right now, our once-powerful seas are being forgotten and are becoming fragile. The more carbon dioxide the ocean absorbs, the more acidic it becomes. Add to that over-fishing, pollution and rising temperatures; the ocean is in crisis. Current laws are failing to protect UK seas, and they are in serious trouble.
How you'll make a difference
We need the next 10 years to be the turning point for our ocean. We need the Government to commit this year to a 10-year strategy that will halt the devastating decline of ocean health, maximise the potential of the ocean as a climate hero and set our ocean on the path to recovery. Join over 110,000 people who have signed our petition. Add your voice to tell Environment Secretary George Eustice that you want the Government to recover UK seas.
