Watch the film, sign the petition and share with friends and family

Right now, only 1% of our global oceans are protected. Overfishing, plastic pollution, oil drilling and climate breakdown are gutting our oceans of life and destroying delicate ecosystems. It’s a tragedy we need to act on before it’s too late.

That’s why we’ve worked with a great cast of actors including Dame Helen Mirren and Olivia Colman and the creators of Wallace and Gromit to make a powerful short film about the impact reckless industries are having on ocean life. It tells the heartbreaking story of a turtle family trying to get home, in an ocean that desperately needs protection.

Kate, we need as many people as possible to know about the urgent crisis unfolding in our oceans if we’re going to change it. Will you take 2 minutes to watch this video and share it with your friends and family?

The plight of sea turtles represents the suffering of our oceans as a whole. Like the turtle family in the film, sea turtles in real life are under intense stress from destructive industries. Six out of the seven sea turtle species are threatened with extinction due to the pressures of multiple ocean threats [1].

And it’s more than just turtles at risk. Studies have shown marine life is disappearing at twice the speed of life on land [2]. This is a reality we can’t accept — and crucially we don’t have to.

Scientists have a plan that would help heal our oceans. If we can create a vast network of sanctuaries – areas off-limit to destructive industries – we’ll give wildlife a chance to recover and thrive [3]. And for the first time in history, there’s a process underway to make this possible: a UN Global Ocean Treaty.
