As the global human population grows, overfishing, pollution and climate change threaten the survival of marine ecosystems - and the many people that rely on them.
Why does it matter?
The oceans produce 70% of Earth's oxygen. They absorb vast amounts of CO2 and drive the Earth's weather systems. They're an essential source of food, feeding over a billion people. Plus, South Africa's coastal goods & services contribute 1/3 to our GDP.
What is WWF doing?
We're working towards healthy oceans that support biodiversity, sustainable livelihoods and a thriving economy. WWF engages with government, businesses and communities to develop an integrated approach to looking after our oceans.
