Over 70% of our planet is covered in water. We depend on oceans, rivers and lakes every day for transportation, food, and enjoyment. We know very little about what lies below the oceans, but they are very important for regulating the planet’s temperature; however, they are suffering from overfishing and plastic pollution. In Canada, we are working to protect more of our coastal and marine areas, learn more about the creatures below, and prevent the overfishing of seafood.
