In the past 50 years, the health of our ocean has declined dramatically and now, more than ever, our ocean needs our help!

A lot of people are not aware of how much we rely on our ocean and the benefits it provides to us. To name a few benefits, the ocean produces 70 – 80% of the oxygen we breathe, generates $21 trillion in ecosystem services each year, and is the main source or protein for 1/4 of the world’s population.

There are 5 main factors that have contributed to the declining health of our ocean, including;

  1. Over-fishing
  2. Pollutions
  3. Invasive species
  4. Habitat destruction
  5. Climate change

Our ocean needs our help and actions must be taken to address these problems in order for our ocean to recover and become healthy once again.

Come and explore the ocean with African Shark Eco-Charters on one of our Great White Shark breaching and cage diving trips in False Bay, and find our how you can help to protect our ocean.
