Our oceans play a critical role in sustaining life on Earth. They hold approximately 97% of the planet’s water, help to shape weather patterns, and support countless ecosystems and food chains. However, this immeasurably valuable resource is now under threat from the impacts of global warming, including rising ocean temperatures, rising sea levels and ocean acidification.
Areas of the ocean where marine species can exist without being hunted are critically important to the ongoing survival of both the marine ecosystems and human life. Such zones are called marine protected areas.
Scientific observations now show that the Earth’s climate has changed very rapidly in the last 100 years or so – climbing by a little under 1 °C.
The world’s reefs are under increasing threat from climate change. Coral bleaching is the most visible and destructive impact caused by climate change. Coral bleaching can killboth the beneficial algae and the coral that depends on it.
It’s possible for humans to both prosper and use the planet’s resources in a sustainable way.
Sustainable development means balancing local and global efforts to meet basic human needs with the need to preserve the natural environment from degradation and destruction. It means meeting our current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.
Here's what we're working on now..
If we don't act now, we could lose koalas in NSW forever.
Koala numbers are plummeting due to weakened tree-clearing laws in Queensland.
