This video showcases why our oceans are so important. It was put together by National Geographic, and highlights
some strong points.

  • 1% of our oceans are protected
  • Over 90% of big predators are gone from our oceans
  • 20% of our Coral Reefs are GONE

At the end of the video it says to check out the National Geographics Ocean website, however I think that spreading the video and educating people
on the importance of our Oceans would be a much more impactful action.

How do you help conserve our oceans? How can we educate the world?
