Call on governments to take action now and protect the health of our ocean for future generations
From 30 October – 8 November governments will be meeting in Jamaica at the International Seabed Authority (ISA) headquarters to develop rules and regulations that, if agreed and adopted, would unleash the largest mining operation in human history upon our ocean – deep-sea mining.
We don’t want or need deep-sea mining and the destruction of marine life that scientists warn would be inevitable and permanent if the industry were to go ahead.
Instead of continuing down the path of exploitation, extraction and extinction, we must use existing resources more wisely and prioritize the protection of the environments that sustain us all.
Our ocean makes life on earth possible. Urge governments to act swiftly and prioritise ocean’s health for future generations.
