The ocean is home to millions of wild species. It gives us oxygen, regulates the climate, and gives us food and inspiration. But our oceans are in trouble.
Canada has committed to protecting 10% of our oceans -- but some protected areas still allow harmful industrial activities like oil and gas exploration, seabed mining, bottom trawling and open net pen aquaculture.
These activities work against conservation and can damage sensitive species and habitats.
As Canadians, we can be world leaders in marine conservation. Tell the government that protection should mean protection. Ask for all industrial activities to be banned from Canada’s marine protected areas.
