Just this past December, world leaders agreed to protect 30% of all oceans by 2030. It was a landmark decision that has implications for every being on Earth! Unfortunately, it was just an agreement; it didn’t actually put in place the mechanisms that are needed to achieve this goal. We hope that’s what will be accomplished in a few short weeks at what could be the very last Global Oceans Treaty negotiations.
Ahead of an Intergovernmental Conference on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity in 2023, Actor and Activist, Jane Fonda, and Greenpeace USA Oceans Campaign Director, John Hocevar, discuss this critical crossroads in the fight to protect the health of our oceans.
