Nature is in crisis. Threatened by habitat loss, pollution, overexploitation and climate change, our planet’s intricate web of ecosystems—which all life depends on—is unraveling at unprecedented rates. From the air we breathe, to the water and food that nourishes us, to the places where we live and play, we must do more to protect nature.
This summer, join Patagonia in calling for the protection of our oceans. Home to amazing, abundant life, the ocean is a powerful climate solution. Yet less than 3 percent of it is fully protected (at least on paper) from human – driven damage. We can do better than 3 percent. Let’s put an end to pollution, overfishing, bottom trawling and open-net salmon farms, and establish marine protected areas that restore vitality to ocean ecosystems so they can nourish us and future generations.
