The sea covers three-quarters of the surface of our planet, and Man has depended upon it ever since his origins. It governs our climate and the production of our food, and the livelihoods of millions of people are directly dependent upon it: from the fisherman who brings in his nets to the farmer waiting for rain or a child turning on a tap in the middle of the city, all of them are bound to the continuity of the cycles of our oceans.

People tend to think that they control the Earth and everything it contains, without stopping to think that resources are limited and that any alteration to the ecosystem may involve irreparable losses for all of us. This is why we need to work towards the conservation of our oceans and the living beings that inhabit them, and towards their sustainable use. So that our children do not have to learn about dolphins from history books, or simply so they can stretch out on the sand on a sunny day.
