about our oceans
Oceans cover 71 percent of the globe, and they are as important to us as they are vast. Yet our oceans are in grave trouble. 90% of the big marine predator fish are gone, all six species of sea turtle are listed as endangered or critically endangered, and populations of sharks and rays have been decimated worldwide. The time to save our oceans is now.
The problems facing the world's oceans can be solved, and Oceana's mission is to identify these practical solutions and make them happen. Oceana is an international organization committed to achieving measurable change by conducting specific, fact-based campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals.
