Our Blue Planet

Our oceans cover more than 70 per cent of the Earth’s surface and share close relationships with our rivers and freshwater reserves. Covering about 70% of the earth’s surface, our seas supply half the oxygen we breathe, and provide food and livelihoods for more than a billion people.

They are also home to over 260,000 species of wondrous creatures and scientists believe there are more than a million species in the seas. However, unscientific human exploitation is driving many creatures to extinction before we have had a chance to even learn about them.

Our oceans and riverine systems serve as vital ecosystems supporting life on Earth while playing a crucial role in global commerce, economy, security, and maritime development. Yet despite this, we know more about outer space than our own oceans, with more detailed maps of Venus and Mars than our planet’s seabeds.
