Can we create healthy oceans and tackle climate change at the same time?

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 12:18:24 +0000

“We woke up to the fact that there’s ocean change just like climate change. We need ocean action like there’s climate action.”   These words rang out at international climate talks last week, spoken by Peter Thompson, the UN’s special envoy for the ocean. This is just one sign that protecting the ocean is fast […]

Watch: Our alternative Coke Christmas advert

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 09:50:23 +0000

Today Coke is due to launch its famous Christmas advert on UK screens. First aired in 1995, it depicts the iconic twinkling red trucks carving through a snowy landscape to an intensely catchy soundtrack. It’s the shorthand for the festive season for a generation. I’m not Coke’s biggest fan, but you do almost get a […]

Amazing News for the Amazon Reef! Brazil has stopped the sale of Oil Blocks in the Amazon Mouth Basin

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 17:12:04 +0000

We’ve prevented new threats to the Amazon Reef, and this is the latest – other oil giants won’t be able to bid for the Amazon Mouth Basin blocks in the 15th bidding round happening next year in 2018. Well done Brazil’s Energy Policy Council (CNPE) for making this happen, whilst we still wait for Total (BP’s […]

Antarctic krill – not just whale food

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 15:18:42 +0000

Krill is whale food. In fact, it’s a commonly held misbelief that ‘krill’ in Norwegian literally means ‘whale food’. It doesn’t, but it’s still true. Massive swarms of krill, a tiny micro-shrimp in the Antarctic Ocean, provide the principal food for blue whales – the largest animal that ever lived. But krill is so much […]

Nice Try Coke But Your New European Bottle Strategy Isn’t Good Enough

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 09:35:52 +0000

This week Coca-Cola released their European sustainability strategy. Thanks to continued pressure from you, it looks like they are finally starting to own up to their enormous plastic footprint and the impact that it’s having on our oceans. Some of the pledges that Coca-Cola have made sound encouraging but is it all what it’s cracked […]

The Evidence is Clear – We Need a UK-Wide Deposit Return Scheme

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 15:35:32 +0000

Watching the latest episode of Blue Planet II, it was mesmerising to discover the secret world of the deep sea. From the the cute flapjack octopus search the seabed looking for worms to the sea toad who walk instead of swim, our seabeds are full of wonderful and rare sea creatures. But in the UK, […]

Help create the largest protected area on Earth: an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 10:47:45 +0000

If you tuned in to Blue Planet II on Sunday night, marvelling at the wonders beneath the waves (and, spoiler alert, the fish *flying* above them) then this should be an easy question. More or less ocean protection? Almost half of our planet is a vast ocean beyond national borders which belongs to us all. […]

5 peaceful protests that prove you can still change the world

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 12:44:22 +0000

NBA players kneeling against white supremacy. Catalonians marching for independence. Quakers disarming Saudi-bound jets. In turbulent times, it’s inspiring to see protest happening — but when change doesn’t come, even the most ardent of campaigners can feel disheartened. What’s worse is that many who’ve never taken a stand can wonder whether they should bother getting involved at all. Yet once your feet […]

Why, with your help, we’re taking the Norwegian Government to court

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 16:15:44 +0000

For the first time in 20 years the Norwegian government is opening up a new oil frontier in the Arctic and it puts our precious wildlife and planet at risk. We believe this contravenes their own constitution that says the State shall ensure for everyone, including future generations, the right to a safe and healthy […]
