Plastic pollution

It has been estimated that nine million tons of plastic waste find its way into the oceans every year. That is nearly one third of all plastic produced. About 20% of this waste originates from ships, while the bigger part is land-borne – carried to the sea by sewers, rivers, wind or tides.

Chemical pollution

Toxins, entering the oceans through radioactivity, plastic or air pollution not only harms the marine animals. Consumers are also affected when eating fish or even dolphin or whale meat.

Deep Sea Mining

The deep sea was one of the last largely untouched regions on earth.

Extraction of these minerals will have devastating effects on marine ecosystems. OceanCare is therefore launching a new program.
