Healthy oceans are a key to our life on Earth as we know it. The oceans produce oxygen, they regulate the climate, and they provide us with many social and economic benefits. They are also home to over 200 000 known species.
Unfortunately, marine life is disappearing at an alarming rate. Climate change, pollution and overexploitation of marine resources are serious issues. If we want to reverse the trend of biodiversity loss and to allow marine life to thrive again, we need to act now. The decisions we make now will be extremely important. But what can we do this year? In the next 10 years? What role can the EU biodiversity strategy play?
