Living Blue Planet Report is the third product of WWF’s global ocean campaign. The report features a new analysis of the marine Living Planet Index from WWF’s popular Living Planet Report 2014.

Using this new analysis applying the Living Planet Index, the Living Blue Planet Report demonstrates the sharp decline in marine biodiversity as a result of pressures that include overfishing, coastal development and climate change.

The trends related to fish resources and marine habitat paint a picture of decline that threatens the survival of wild species and communities around the world that depend on healthy ocean ecosystems.

The report also identifies the main steps the world needs to take to rebuild the breaking ocean.
