Oceans are part of the foundation of all life on the planet. This vast, complex ecosystem that covers 70% of Earth’s surface provides food, regulates climate change, affects weather patterns and more. 
Despite its importance, we are using it as a dumping ground. The implications of this pose a significant threat to our lives and the web of life on the planet. 
Three leading experts, authors of the report on Human Health and Ocean Pollution just released in Monaco under the auspices of Prince Albert of Monaco, will share the threats to our oceans and what we can do to stop our destruction of this vital generator of life on the planet.
