Sources: Save our oceans
Problem Overfishing, pollution and waste disposal, agricultural runoff, invasive alien species, sewage, pesticides, industrial chemicals, other types of waste. This neverending list of human interference is threatening the delicate balance of our oceans [1,4]. Global climate change is raising the sea level, increasing the water temperature, and acidifying seawater [5,7,9]. We’re losing the rich biodiversity of marine ecosystems at an unprecedented rate. We need to act now to save our oceans.
Facts and Figures
Oceans cover 75% of the Earth’s surface 
80% of all pollution in seas and oceans comes from land-based activities .
Every year, 8 million tonnes of plastic waste enters oceans and kills up to 1 million seabirds, and countless fish [12,13].
Pollutants like mercury contaminate seafood, causing birth defects, cancer and neurological problems .
All major bays and estuaries contain dead zones due to pollution run-off [15,16].
By the end of this century, the surface waters of the ocean could have a pH of 7.8., similar to 14-17 million years ago, when a major extinction event occurred [17, 18].
Solution There are organisations doing crucial work to tackle ocean pollution, overfishing, and climate change, however, in order to solve the problem from its root cause more novel research and interdisciplinary problem-solving approaches are needed [19-22]. Saving the oceans requires a global commitment. We need to raise public awareness even more and implement international laws and policies to protect the biodiversity of our waters [27,28]. The organisations we picked for this appeal address the problem from different angles, from ocean plastics to sustainable fishing. With your support, you will contribute to a holistic solution.
