For Irish Marine Social Scientist and surfer Dr. Easkey Britton, the ocean is a part of her. It is in her name, in her history, in the soul of her nation, in the core of her being. In Easkey's world, all life revolves around the ocean. 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.
