The federal government has made a commitment to establish a network of marine protected areas in Canada but so far, progress has been painfully slow. The government needs to speed up progress on marine protection if we are going to meet our international commitment to protect 10% of our coastal and marine resources by 2020. That’s the next crucial step we need to take on the way to protecting enough of our oceans to conserve their amazing biodiversity for our children and theirs to come.
So far, over 16,000 people have signed the pledge to support advancing marine conservation in Canada. Add your voice to help us reach our goal of establishing 12 new marine protected areas and networks of marine protected areas in all of our oceans!
If you've already signed on to protect our oceans, write a letter now to tell governments you want our oceans protected!
