Time to Save Our Oceans

To EU leaders:

As concerned citizens from across the world, we call on you to champion a rescue plan for the world's oceans that will protect 20% of our oceans as marine reserves by 2020; end overfishing and ban harmful subsidies; and establish an international binding treaty to protect life on the high seas. The oceans are dying, and this is our greatest opportunity to ensure their protection for future generations.

Our oceans are dying. Beset by pollution and demolition industrial fishing, the magical and bountiful deep blue is turning into a barren desert. But right now, governments are considering a new rescue plan -- and we can help push it through.

The new plan would create new marine sanctuaries so that the seas replenish themselves and a new treaty for critical protection of the high seas. But Canada, the US and Japan are threatening to water down or even kill it. Our only hope is to get behind Europe to champion the idea before it's too late.

The talks are off the media's radar. Let's break open the talks and deliver massive global support to Europe to save our oceans. Sign the urgent petition and send this to everyone -- once we hit 500,000 signatures, we'll deliver the petition straight into the meeting!
