Ocean Science: Ten Years to Turn the Tide

Thought Leadership 52 min

For much of history the seas have loomed impossibly large and untouchable. This perception is at odds with the vulnerability of ocean environments. Now, following decades of abuse by a growing human society, a realisation has been reached.

The degradation of the world’s oceans has led to several looming crises: plastic pollution, warmer waters and chemical changes are all causing untold damage.

But all is not lost, in 2021 the UN launched its Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. A science-led initiative to deliver the ocean we want by 2030, putting data at the heart of efforts to save the seas.

This episode was recorded in front of a live audience at Oceanology International 2022.
