Over 3 billion people depend on marine and coastal biodiversity for their livelihood. Keep the marine environment clean.
Make sure that the fish you purchase does not come from overfishing areas that exploit labour conditions and cause damage to the living environments of local communities.
When swimming, collect waste you find under the water to protect the environment and the surrounding communities.
Learn about marine ecosystems to raise personal awareness on the importance that oceans and organisms play in regulating the biosphere.
About 80% of all tourism takes place in coastal areas. The ocean-related tourism industry supports in some countries over a third of the labour force. Tourism can pose a major threat to the natural resources on which it depends, and to local culture and industry. Keep that in mind and act accordingly on your next journey!
