You can help Protect our Oceans.

Our blue planet is in crisis. From climate change, plastics, mining, destructive fishing and more - the threats facing our oceans are growing everyday.
In a matter of weeks governments around the world will meet to discuss a Global Ocean Treaty which could protect our oceans through ocean sanctuaries. 
Now is the best chance we have at safeguarding our oceans. There is no time to lose. 

We must urgently help our oceans
Ocean Sanctuaries can give wildlife space to recover and, in turn, help to cycle carbon and avoid the worst effects of the climate crisis. 

The Antarctic alone is home to over 9,000 marine species including humpback whales and emperor penguins but sadly they are under threat from climate change and destructive industries. 
It is vital that we protect at least 30% of the oceans by 2030, not the paltry 3% we have now. 

Right now, Greenpeace is sailing to the Antarctic to raise the alarm for our oceans

Our last stop before leaders meet is the beautiful wilderness of the Antarctic - one of many vital ecosystems that could be protected by this treaty.

Onboard our ship, the Arctic Sunrise, we'll conduct scientific research to show why the Antarctic and all oceans need protection NOW


Leg 1: Penguin science  

Researching the effect climate change has had on different species of penguin to help protect this magnificent species.

Leg 2: Submarine 

Diving underwater to research vital ecosystems in the depths of the Antarctic ocean.

This is our best chance to push for a strong Global Ocean Treaty

Will you help protect our oceans?
