One World One Ocean

The biggest problem of all: most people don't know the ocean is in trouble.

The One World One Ocean Campaign is using the power of film, television and new media to inspire people to protect and restore the health of the ocean.

One World One Ocean is a new organization dedicated to saving our oceans through increasing marine protection areas, changing the way people think about seafood, and reducing the use of plastics.

I just joined One World One Ocean's campaign to protect our oceans, and the life within.
Will you join me?

The facts don't lie:
  • only 1% of our oceans are protected, compared to 12% of our land.
  • 90% of the world's large fish are gone.
  • the global catch of fish and shellfish in 2010 was 92 million tons. That's equal to 252 Empire State Buildings!
None of this is sustainable, and now we can do something about it.

Renowned oceanographer and National Geographic explorer-in-residence Sylvia Earle discusses the threats facing our oceans.
