Sea Life Trust joins OurOcean

The world's biggest aquarium chain SEA LIFE, which includes Kelly Tarlton's, has thrown its weight behind a fast-growing global marine conservation movement, '#OurOcean'.

 

Launched by US Senator John Kerry in 2014, #OurOcean is an annual conference which brings together global leaders from across the world to drive collective action to tackle the serious issues facing the present and future marine environment.

 

In addition, the 50 SEA LIFE centres worldwide and their partner charity The SEA LIFE Trust have agreed to ally their own 'Team Turtle' campaign to the #OurOcean initiative involving World Aquariums.

 

The addition of the SEA LIFE chain to the #OurOcean support network instantly boosts the number of aquariums behind the initiative from 97 to 147 worldwide, located now in 38 countries.

EU Commissioner Karmenu Vella reacted: "We are delighted that SEA LIFE has joined the World Aquariums Against Marine Litter campaign, which we launched in July of this year,"

 

"Having their support ensures that millions more people, especially young people, will be sensitised to the urgent need to reduce plastic waste in our oceans. Welcome SEA LIFE - another fantastic partner of #OurOcean 2017!

 

Figures compiled by OurOcean suggest a staggering 10 million tonnes of litter are dumped in our seas every year, and that by 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the marine world.
