Healthy oceans are critical for ensuring food security in highly vulnerable regions and for promoting thriving coastal economies. However, drastic climate related changes are occurring in our oceans – from oyster die-offs to coral reef bleaching – that are being felt by coastal communities around the world.

Working together, we can increase global attention on actions that address the causes of ocean acidification and changing ocean conditions, as well as reduce future impacts to our coastal communities, economies and the health of our oceans.
