Our oceans provide over half of the world’s oxygen supply, regulate the global climate system, and provide the primary source of food for billion's of people.
Big Blue Ocean Cleanup is helping efforts to protect the world’s oceans by the creation of marine protected and offshore cleanup areas. The marine protected areas allow fish populations to replenish and increase the resilience of marine ecosystems, acting as a barrier against the damaging effects of climate change.
Ocean rubbish affects the health of marine wildlife, people and local economies and can be mistaken as food by wildlife, or entangle animals with lethal consequences.
From plankton to dolphins, marine wildlife across ocean ecosystems have been contaminated by pollution.
