Seabed Mining

Deep-sea mining threatens the delicate balance of life at the depths of the ocean. SOA calls for a 10-year moratorium on any mining so that its impact can be fully understood.

We have partnered with the Oxygen Project to spread the word, and co-hosted the #DefendtheDeep virtual summit in December 2020 (video recap here.)

Check out our campaign page to sign the petition, download the social media toolkit, and share our campaign video in 5 languages.
