World Conservation Congress

From Avaaz website

Our oceans are collapsing, with vast disturbing dead areas reported to be expanding in the Pacific. But hope is also rising, with more ocean protected last year than ever before!

This week could decide whether collapse or conservation wins the race. Scientists say if we conserve 30% of our oceans, that will be enough to regenerate the rest -- and this plan is actually on the table at the powerful World Conservation Congress, which starts today!

Countries with fishing lobbies like Japan are opposing the plan, so it's up to us to bring a massive counterweight of people power. This could be the tipping point for our oceans -- let's send 1 million voices to save them straight into the summit.
