Earlier this week, at a 5-day conference called Defying Ocean's End (DOE) it was announced that an anonymous donor has offered Conservation International $5 million towards protecting the world's oceans - provided they can raise an additional $4 million!
Over-fishing, destructive fishing methods, coastal development, pollution + climate change all threaten the future of world's oceans.
Earth-Info.Net's fingers + toes are therefore crossed in the hope that someone else will step forward to help fund the Action Plan to Save Earth's Oceans before too long!
