For pro surfer and non-profit founder Mikey February, the ocean impacts his hometown of Cape Town, South Africa in ways as diverse as the city itself. Whether it be a place of expression, therapy, escape, or opportunity, the many cultures who live there all share a deep connection to the ocean. 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.
