Protecting at least 30% of the ocean by 2030. Can you believe it? I had no idea that today only 15% of land, 15% of freshwaters and 7% of our ocean are protected. What?!

New Zealand Parliament Signatures are now accepted:
That the House of Representatives pass legislation to establish Marine Reserves to protect at least 30% of New Zealand’s ocean (EEZ) by 2030.
Petition reason We want to see New Zealand’s government do their part to meet the IUCN global goal of 30% protection of the world’s ocean in Marine Protected Areas by 2030. Pollution, overfishing, destructive fishing methods, and other extractive activities place dangerous pressures on our ocean, and these effects are only compounded by climate change. Establishing a robust network of marine reserves is one of the most important things we can do to mitigate these threats and protect our ocean in New Zealand.
