Days to save the Antarctic ocean

SIGN THE PETITION AT THIS LINK:

http://avaaz.org/en/save_the_southern_ocean_5/?slideshow

Within days, governments could begin turning wide stretches of the Antarctic ocean into the world's largest marine sanctuary, saving the habitat of whales, penguins, and thousands of other polar species from industrial fishing fleets. But they won’t act unless we speak out now.


Most countries support the sanctuary, but Russia, South Korea and a few others are threatening to vote it down so they can plunder these seas now that others have been fished to death. This week, a small group of negotiators will meet behind closed doors to make a decision. A massive people-powered surge could break open the talks, isolate those attempting to block the sanctuary, and secure a deal to protect over 6 million square kilometers of the precious Antarctic ocean.

The whales and penguins can't speak for themselves, so it's up to us to defend them. Let's change negotiators' minds with a massive wave of public pressure -- Avaaz will surround the meeting with hard-hitting ads, and together we'll deliver our message to delegates via a deafening cry on social networks. Sign and share this urgent petition.

SUZUKI PETITION RE CANADA'S OCEANS (for Canadians)
1 year ago

http://action2.davidsuzuki.org/spend-a-little-save-a-lot

Please click on the link above to sign the letter to the Conservative Govt. asking for funding to establish marine protected areas and ensure Canada's Oceans are healthy now and in the future.

On February 5, 2013, the federal government’s environmental watchdog released a report suggesting that Canada has a long way to go to protect our coastal ecosystems and oceans.

The report — by Canada’s Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, Scott Vaughan -- questions why Canada has only protected one per cent of our oceans, and cautions that we won’t meet our commitment to protect 10 per cent of our oceans for decades to come unless we take action now.

Meanwhile, Australia and the United States are well on their way to meeting ocean conservation goals (at 40 and eight per cent respectively)

In short, it’s a lot of talk and little action.

Canada’s 243,000-kilometre coastline provides employment for over 315,000 and contributes more than $26 billion annually to Canada’s economy. It makes good fiscal sense to take care of an asset this big and productive. Unfortunately, we aren’t doing that.

Through successive and consistent funding cuts, the government of Canada is failing to acknowledge the liabilities created from overuse and under-investment in our oceans.

Please tell the federal government that we’ve talked long enough. It’s time to start funding a program to establish marine protected areas and ensure Canada’s oceans are healthy now and into the future.
