What does the ocean mean to you and why should it be protected?
Matt: The oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface and contain 97% of the Earth’s water. Water is our most precious resource so to me it seems obvious why it needs to be protected. On a more personal level, I live at the beach and surf almost every day. I want that to always be a natural and healthy part of my life. I don’t want to see my beautiful local beaches covered in trash, I don’t want to get sick from surfing polluted waters, I want the fish I eat to be healthy and safe to eat.
Ron: The ocean teaming with life and covers the majority of earth, so it only makes sense that we protect it and care for it. Because the world’s oceans regulate so much of our climate, what happens to the oceans directly affects the rest of the world.
