Life Below Water
UN Sustainable development Goals
Goal 14: Life Below Water
The world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents and life – drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind.
Over three billion people depend on marine and coastal biodiversity for their livelihoods.
Marine pollution is reaching alarming levels, with an average of 13,000 pieces of plastic litter to be found on every square kilometre of ocean.
