The Threats to Our Seas and What You Can Do to Turn the Tide

This unique tie-in to the major motion picture Oceans — coming this April from Disney & National Geographic — explores the health of our oceans, and what we can do to improve it.

Since half the world’s human population lives within a stone’s throw of an ocean coastline, the oceans’ health is increasingly important. Rich with resources and potential — as a source of renewable energy, new drugs, drinking water — for years we have treated them as both infinite and undamageable. But they are not.

Over-fishing, climate change, pollution, acidification, and more have put the world’s oceans and marine life at great risk.

Oceans gathers some of the most insightful visionaries, explorers, and ocean lovers — marine biologists, politicians, environmentalists, fishermen, sportsmen, deep divers, and more — in a unique anthology, in which each speaks to a unique aspect of our world’s most dimly understood dimension.
