Marine Debris Campaign

Humpback whales communicate with complex songs that can be as loud as the sound of a jet plane (around 150 decibels).

Illegal fishing accounts for an estimated 11-26 million tons of the annual catch of fish globally.

12-15 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean every year, killing one million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals.

Around the world, between 70 and 100 million sharks die each year through fishing, shark finning and shark mitigation programs. 

If not for whaling, ship strikes, pollution and entanglement in fishing gear, some whales could live for over 200 years.

For every pound of trawled shrimp, up to six pounds of "bycatch” is also captured, including turtles and dolphins.

In 2 years, we collected 1,233,595 pieces of rubbish from our beaches in 279 beach clean-ups. 80% of these items were plastic.
