Our oceans are host to the vast majority of life on this planet and hold some of our most diverse ecosystems but our oceans are under threat: climate change, over-fishing, habitat destruction on an epic scale and pollution of all kinds are jeopardising the health of our oceans and their ability to provide for us. Through high-level advocacy we seek to protect our oceans for future generations.
The 'Out of the Blue' photography competition was launched on World Oceans Day 2015 by HRH The Prince of Wales. The photographs showcase the importance of our marine environment, the value it brings and the threats it is facing.
UN Patron of the Oceans and friend of the Royal Commonwealth Society, Lewis Pugh advocates for the future health of our oceans.
