Oceans

Three quarters of Planet Earth is covered in oceans — and those oceans are in crisis. According to the United Nations, of the seventeen major global fisheries, fourteen have collapsed or are collapsing. Over-fishing is wiping out species after species. Pollution and inconsistent development threaten coastal areas.

As a coastal nation bordering three oceans, Canada has a strong role to play in protecting marine ecosystems and species. So far, our record is not one of which we can be proud. Canada dropped out of the International Whaling Commission, in protest over global actions to protect whales.

Our fisheries, which should be sustainable, are in decline. Sierra Club of Canada is working to protect fisheries, halt environmentally destructive aquaculture, and clean up coastal sources of pollution.
