Protect the ocean so it can protect us.
Our future is tied to the ocean.

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and
 sport. Home to amazing, abundant life, the ocean is also a powerful climate solution. 
Yet less than 3 per cent of it is fully protected (at least on paper) from human-driven 
damage. We can do better than 3 per cent. Let’s put an end to pollution, overfishing,
 bottom trawling and open-net salmon farms, and establish marine protected areas that 
restore vitality to these ecosystems and ensure these waters can nourish us and future

Patagonia is committed to using all of our resources to save our home planet. Join us to
 protect our ocean.
