This Sunday is the UN’s World Wildlife Day with the theme being “Life Below Water: For People and Planet”—making this the first time the day will focus on marine species. The aim is to raise awareness about the diversity of marine life and the importance of marine species to human development, and to explore how we can ensure that our oceans will continue to provide these services for future generations. Covering two-thirds of the planet, our oceans produce 50% of the oxygen on Earth. They regulate our climate, provide food for over 3 billion people, and absorb 30% of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere and 90% of the heat from climate change. Despite this, human activity threatens this unique, critical environment.

If you’re up for it, would you consider donating the money you would have spent on a cup of coffee today to one of our incredible partners who work tirelessly on marine conservation? Check them out:
