The new High Seas Treaty will safeguard life in the entire ocean beyond countries’ national jurisdictions. It is the global opportunity to finally address the many governance gaps that have plagued the ocean and left it vulnerable to overexploitation for decades.
Governments formally adopted the High Seas Treaty in June. But for it to become law, it must be ratified by at least 60 countries. We need that to happen fast so that we can ramp up international action to protect our shared ocean, mitigate climate breakdown and safeguard the lives and livelihoods of billions of people worldwide.
It has taken almost two decades to get this far. A critical tool to address our planetary emergency is within our grasp.
Ask governments to Ratify the High Seas Treaty Now!
