Our oceans are under threat!! To help and echo this message, I joined Greenpeace on their voyage from the North to the South Pole. This year long voyage was filled with scientists, marine biologists, campaigners and ocean ambassadors. I joined the team for two weeks, boarding in Cape Town. My leg of the journey was to the underwater sea mountain-Mount Vema. All this to expose the urgent threats facing our oceans. From climate change and plastics, to mining and overfishing – the threats facing our oceans are growing bigger and more urgent day by day. Now we have a chance to turn things around, by putting the most vulnerable and important parts of our seas off-limits to destructive industries. Governments are starting work on a Global Ocean Treaty. If they get it right, it’ll open the door to a vast network of ocean sanctuaries, which could protect over a third of the world's seas. Our oceans sustain all life on Earth – now they need us to protect them.🌎 You can help by just signing the petition. Go to my YouTube to find link. Help us reach 3,000,000 signatures!
