Our oceans are under threat
Ocean acidification and other pollution threatens our marine environment and ocean creatures.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the burning of fossil fuels find their way into the ocean.
So much CO2 has been absorbed over the last sixty years that it has significantly increased the acidity of the ocean by thirty percent to the point that some marine animals (corals, plankton, squid and shellfish such as oysters and mussels) survival are threatened.
Four things you can do:
Reduce your carbon footprint
Watersports and the equipment we use contribute to carbon emissions. Clean Ocean Foundation has partnered with Greenfleet to offer carbon offsets.
Green Fleet are a long established, reputable charity that plants trees to offset carbon emissions.
For every $10 you donate to Clean Ocean Foundation under this campaign, $8 will go to Green Fleet and $2 to Clean Ocean Foundation.
All donations above $5 are tax deductible

Reduce outfall pollution and stop the waste!
Sustainable management of ocean outfalls and water supply impact directly on water supply, greenhouse emissions and the oceans.
By upgrading the quality of outfall water to Class A+ we increase water for recycling and reduce need for environmentally damaging alternatives.
