Subject line: You can help stop deep-sea mining before it begins

Dear Minister,

I am writing to express my deep concern regarding the potential approval of deep-sea mining in international waters. Opening our ocean to a vast new frontier of industrial extraction, that we do not need, would have catastrophic consequences for people and planet.

As a member of the International Seabed Authority (ISA), your government bears the crucial responsibility of safeguarding our ocean from the destructive impacts that scientists warn would be inevitable and permanent were we to strip-mine the fragile deep seabed. Now is the time for you to seize this opportunity and take a firm stance against deep sea mining. You can play a pivotal role in halting deep-sea mining by attending the ISA and calling for a moratorium on this destructive industry, actioning the commitments you have made to protect the blue heart of our planet.

By joining the ranks of ocean champions, you have the power to press pause on deep-sea mining and prioritize a sustainable future for future generations.

Thank you for your attention to this critical matter.
