3 Ways You Can Help Our Coastal Seas

Where land meets sea is a rich community of plants and animals—all vital to the health of our planet ... and us. Coastal seas make up only 10% of our oceans but are home to over 90% of all marine species. And seafood is the major protein source for roughly 1.5 billion people.

The Coastal Seas episode of Our Planet, created in collaboration with WWFand now streaming on Netflix, reveals that development and climate change have negatively impacted these areas. We've lost half of all coral reefs and mangroves, and stand to lose even more.

Taking better care of our seas is something we must do together.WWF is working to expand mangrove cover, save coral reefs, improve fishing practices, and support community-led conservation in important coastal regions. Explore how you can do your part to protect our coastal seas.

Our Oceans Deserve Better

Dear Friends,
Every minute, a dump truck's worth of plastic enters the oceans, and an estimated 150 million metric tons of plastic are already in our oceans. While many of us are already likely taking steps to reduce plastic pollution by recycling and reducing single-use items, we need governments to step up and be accountable.

 Join the Fight Against Plastic Pollution  ► 
This agreement focuses on setting strict goals for pollution reduction and creating an action plan in each country.
The negative effects of plastic on our oceans and on marine life are severe. But it's not too late to do something about it.

Every single country is part of this crisis. And every single country must be part of the solution. Ask world leaders to create a global and legally-binding agreement to stop the leakage of plastics into our oceans by 2030.
