Life on Earth depends on our oceans. They feed us, regulate our climate and supply more than half the oxygen we breathe. Yet we are poisoning and abusing them.
Our oceans are vast and the threats to them are mounting, but WWF-Australia is charting a brave new course. There's no time to delay. We urgently need your help to protect our marine environments and their amazing wildlife.
Your generous support today will help create the largest net-free area on the Great Barrier Reef- 85,000 kilometres from Cooktown to the Torres Strait - to stop turtles and dugongs from dying in fishing nets, secure proper protection for the Coral Sea, a key migratory corridor and whale nursery, and fund our campaign to reduce marine plastics.
From the warm, turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef to the icy depths of Antarctica, fragile habitats and endangered creatures are in crisis.
Our delicate corals are dying from the effects of pollution and climate change. Poorly regulated fishing is costing innocent dugongs and dolphins their lives. Rare turtles and seabirds are drowning in marine plastics. And up to 130,000 tonnes of plastic will wind up in our oceans each year. Scientists estimate that by 2050 there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish.
