A healthy ocean means more than beautiful coasts and vibrant ocean wildlife. A healthy ocean supplies the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. If the ocean isn’t healthy, neither are we.
Oceans may seem vast and endless, but human activity is impacting every part of our waters and putting the health of the oceans in danger. For oceans to keep sustaining us, we must find a way to sustain them.
Our planet Earth is unique in our solar system due mainly to the existence of our magnificent oceans.
The ocean covers 70% of the Earth’s surface and contains 97% of the planet’s water. Water connects us all through our rivers, lakes, watersheds, beaches, our coastline, and coastal waters.
Nakawe education posts are designed to inspire, educate and connect millions of people worldwide in a common purpose: protect and restore the health of the ocean and appreciate and take responsibility for the marine ecosystem.
The oceans have played a role in the lives of human civilizations since the dawn of time but unfortunately, they are facing severe threats. Global warming and the associated rising sea temperatures, over fishing, destructive fishing methods, acidification of the ocean, and pollution are all putting the fragile seas at risk and whatever threatens our oceans, threatens all live on Earth.
