One Ocean, One Climate, One Future
Together we can encourage leaders from around the world to support the global movement for 30x30, which calls for collaborating with local communities to protect at least 30% of our lands, waters, and ocean by 2030.
In order to address both the biodiversity crisis and the climate crisis, there is growing scientific research that half of the planet must be kept in a natural state. Some papers have suggested that the number should be even higher, and some have suggested slightly lower. Despite this, experts agree that a scientifically credible and necessary interim goal is to achieve a minimum of 30% protection by 2030.
Please sign and share the petition linked below to urge leaders around the world to act now to protect 30x30.
Global leaders the time to act is now! #WorldOceanDay #30x30 - So far over 90 countries have signed on. Let's get everyone on board. This World Ocean Day join us and people around the world by signing in support of the global movement to protect 30% of the planet’s lands, waters, and ocean by 2030.
Together we can help protect our most cherished resources, the parks, oceans, reserves, we all love to go and unwind in, with our families and friends, the very reserves that our parents and grandparents have enjoyed, and that we want our own children and families to continue to enjoy for generations to come.
1 ocean, 1 climate, 1 future.
This week, and today especially, there are millions of people celebrating our blue planet around the world! Many are incorporating advocacy and a call for ongoing action to restore and protect our ocean. Join them by participating in one of the thousands of conservation-related events and activities.
I posted this the day after World ocean day - reason; its already yesterday, and often forgotten, as a people, we will not be remembered by our thoughts, but by our actions, now is the time to raise awareness and take action. In New Zealand, possibly more uniquely than any other country I know, we are inherently intertwined with the natural environment all around us, whether for fishing, surfing, tramping, skiing, camping, BBQ with Whānau we all love to be outdoors. Lets help ensure we pass on this amazing privilege in a safer and better condition than we found it.
Browse the WorldOceanDay.org database of events, activities, and announcements to find an in-person event near you, or a virtual activity you can do from the safety and comfort of your own home.
Although there are not too many planned in New Zealand, we would love to hear your ideas and see if we can work together to raise awareness for the amazing open spaces we have to enjoy.
