This August, governments will meet at the UN to hopefully finalize a Global Ocean Treaty. This is a historic opportunity to transform how our shared global oceans are protected and managed. 

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 biodiverse parts of our seas off-limits to destructive industries. 

If governments get  the Global Ocean Treaty right, it’ll open the door to a vast network of ocean sanctuaries, which could protect over a third of the world's seas. A strong treaty could help build a more just and equitable ocean order. 

Our oceans sustain all life on Earth— now they need us to protect them.

Add your name to help cover our planet in ocean sanctuaries, and call on Canada and other global governments to finalize a strong Global Ocean Treaty at the UN.
