PROJECT ZERO is a global movement supported by renowned scientists, business leaders, campaigners, culture makers and ocean experts, who are all working together to awaken the fight for the ocean.
The ocean is the blue heart of our planet, supplying oxygen, absorbing carbon, creating jobs, food, and endless beauty. It is our biggest ally in the fight against the climate crisis. Project Zero has set out to create a global network of ocean sanctuaries to provide resilience to the devastating effects of the climate crisis. Stretching from Antarctica to the Bering Strait, and mapped out by the world's leading marine scientists, this global network of projects will be able to restore our ocean’s health, and set us on a path to create a sustainable future for life on Earth.
The ocean accounts for 70% of our planet, yet only about 2% its waters are fully protected, and the vast majority of existing ocean sanctuaries are either poorly managed, or not looked after at all. It is estimated that 93% of the earth's CO2 is stored or cycled through the ocean, which also gives us over half of the oxygen we breathe. Today the ocean is sick. We need to restore the ocean to health to save our planet.
Your purchase of this pendant supports Project Zero’s work to turn the tide on the climate crisis.
THE PLANET IS IN TROUBLE, BUT THE OCEAN CAN HELP
The ocean is our planet's life support system. Every second breath you take comes from the ocean. The ocean makes the clouds that make rain and snow to give us fresh water. Over one billion people daily rely on the ocean as a source of food, and countless others for their livelihoods. The ocean stores carbon and regulates the climate. The ocean gives us life. It represents 99% of all live-able space on our planet, yet only 2% is strongly protected. No ocean, no life.
IT’S TIME TO SHOW THE OCEAN SOME LOVE
The greatest threat to our planet is climate change and if we don’t take action now, the collapse of civilization and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon. The ocean needs safe havens where it can replenish, and fortify itself against climate change, overfishing and pollution. That means strongly protecting at least 30% of the ocean by 2030, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, coastal to high seas areas and everywhere in between.
TURN THE TIDE ON THE CLIMATE CRISIS
Developed with a team of leading scientists and experts, we’re supporting a phenomenal system – a system that can absorb the most carbon dioxide in the entire world and create enough oxygen for more than every second breath we take. This system is the ocean.
Project Zero is working to get our biggest weapon against the climate crisis - the ocean - back in shape. We need to invest in the ocean to save our planet. Project Zero has mapped out a battle plan to secure protection for a global network of marine protected areas, providing funding one at a time until the job is done and 30% of our ocean is under protection.
