For surfer, chemist, and journalist Dr. Cliff Kapono, words and statistics fail to describe how much the ocean means to him. It is bigger than his culture, greater than his profession. Plainly put, nature has given him everything and he needs the ocean to survive. Join him 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.
