Ancient forests are in danger… deep under the ocean.
Biologists estimate that somewhere between 500,000 and 5,000,000 marine species have yet to be discovered. But these very species are in serious danger from the world’s most destructive fishing practice – bottom trawling – and we are campaigning to stop this destruction before it is too late. This is truly the last undiscovered wilderness left on the planet.
