Goal 14:

Life Below Water


The saying ‘plenty more fish in the sea’ is looking like it soon may become obsolete. Scientists estimate that over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently litter our oceans - bad news for the 200,000 species that live in our oceans. Overfishing and poor water quality is bringing many sea-creatures to the brink of extinction and causing big problems to our entire ecosystem. Goal 14 is all about caring for our oceans. Together, we can deep dive into our oceanic crisis and take action to help people, wildlife and the global economy.

The UN’s SubGoals for life below water

  • Reduce marine pollution
  • Protect and restore ecosystems
  • Reduce ocean acidification
  • Sustainably farm fish
  • Conserve coastal and marine areas
  • End subsidies contributing to overfishing
  • Increase the economic benefits from sustainable use of marine resources
  • Increase scientific knowledge, research and technology for ocean health
  • Support small scale fishers buy local and certified fish. You can support small-scale producers by shopping in local markets and shops.
  • Implement and enforce international sea law

How you can help

1

Run a campaign on the effects of plastic use on the seas and oceans.

2

Never buy bottled water – boil, filter, chlorine, rainwater, do what you can.

3

Buy local and certified fish. You can support small-scale producers by shopping in local markets and shops.
