Why do we need to protect our oceans? 

Our oceans sustain all life on earth but they are under threat from destructive industries like industrial fishing, deep-sea mining and plastic pollution. Oceans and marine wildlife need the space to recover free from harmful human activity. Scientists predict we need to protect at least 30% of our oceans by 2030 to avoid the worst effects of the climate crisis. 

What is a Global Ocean Treaty? 

It's an international agreement – currently under negotiation by governments at the UN – that would make it possible to properly protect the high seas through a network of oceans sanctuaries. 

What are ocean sanctuaries?

Sanctuaries are similar to national parks, just in the ocean. They are designed to protect ecosystems from human exploitation, which means forbidding industrial fishing, mining, and other destructive human activities.

Penguins are feeling the heat from climate change

New research from our Antarctic expedition has found a biological change in penguin behaviour due to our warming climate. The oceans, vital ecosystems and marine wildlife need the best chance they can get to be able to adapt.

  • Scientists from Stony Brook University on our Antarctic expedition discovered a new gentoo penguin breeding colony on Andersson Island (1).

  • This was some of the southmost records for Gentoo penguins where, until recently, it was far too icy for the more temperate Gentoo penguin to successfully raise chicks.

  • Penguins are experiencing significant changes in the Antarctic due to the rapidly changing climate and industrial fishing.

The Antarctic is just one of many vital ecosystems that would be protected with a Global Ocean Treaty
