Our Blue Planet
Our oceans cover more than 70 per cent of the Earth’s surface and shares close relationships with our rivers and freshwater reserves.Covering about 70% of the earth’s surface, our seas supply half the oxygen we breathe, and provide food and livelihoods for more than a billion people.
They are also home to over 260,000 species of wondrous creatures and scientists believe there are more than a million species in the seas. However, unscientific human exploitation is driving many creatures to extinction before we have had a chance to even learn about them.
Our seas and riverine systems not only support life on earth- they guide our commerce and economy as well as security and maritime prospects.Yet, we know more about outer space than our own oceans; we have better maps of Mars and Venus than the seabed.
