Take action for the oceans! Make a submission to the New South Wales Government's consultation on single-use plastics products.
12-15 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean every year, killing one million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals. Around the world, between 70 and 100 million sharks die each year through fishing, shark finning and shark mitigation programs. Humpback whales communicate with complex songs that can be as loud as the sound of a jet plane (around 150 decibels).
Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE) is a charity dedicated to restoring the ocean to health by addressing overfishing, one of the world’s biggest environmental problems. Our vision is a healthy ocean forever, for everyone.
