Overview

Threats to the ocean are so extensive today that more than 40% of the ocean has already been severely affected and virtually no area has been left untouched. The business-as-usual trajectory will have detrimental effects, with the WWF estimating that the costs could be $8.4 trillion to the global economy over the next 15 years. Immediate action could save the ocean and reduce these costs to $3.3 trillion.

Key learning objectives:

  • Identify the 5 key threats to the ocean
