For professional surfer Sophia Medina, her connection to the ocean began with her very first steps into its waters. Since then, the ocean has been a place of peace, tranquility, and belonging. She hopes to preserve it so future generations of young people can discover the same connection she has. Join her in signing the petition on WeAreOneOcean.org.
We're calling on world leaders to adopt a target at the 2021 United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity to protect and conserve at least 30 percent of the global ocean, international waters, by 2030. We urge world leaders to be driven by science, and led by an inclusive process that embraces all stakeholder communities and considers the ocean's value to the peoples of every nation.
