The deep sea is a treasure trove of biodiversity and home to untold wonders and possibilities. It is also one of our best allies against climate change. But a threat is coming: deep sea mining.

The good news is we can stop this industry before it’s too late. But we don’t have much time.

Deep sea mining companies, including Canada-based ‘The Metals Company’, are pressuring our governments to let them go several kilometers below the surface of the ocean, and chew up the seabed to extract metals. If this industry is given the green light, gigantic machines weighing more than a blue whale will be lowered onto the ocean floor to plunder these pristine ocean ecosystems.

This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity. Help us stop another extractive industry from damaging the global oceans.

Canada announced its support for a moratorium on deep sea mining in 2023 [1]. Now it must join other global governments in ensuring these calls of support become a reality to ensure this industry stops before it starts and the deep ocean is protected.

Sign this petition to tell the Canadian government to hold the line and actively engage with other countries to convince them to make a deep sea mining moratorium a reality.
