- Take actions before itís too late
Man has always been dependent
on the sea. The sea regulates climate, offers raw materials and food. It
is questionable if these resources remain available for future generations.
Reasons are exploitation, growing pressure on marine environment and increasing
destruction of the marine ecosystem caused by overfishing, by-catch, pollution
or growing shipping industry.
The DEADLINE campaign
deals with these aspects and provides information and perspectives for
contributions to the protection of the marine ecosystem.
Marine protection does not
only involve nature conservation, but also considers economic aspects.
Reputable economic studies verified that marine resources are valued at
approximately 23 trillion US-dollars. The increasing exploitation of resources
is therefore an enormous loss which must be considered in the balance sheet
of national economy.
Itís high time to convince
governments and decision makers of the explosive force linked to this subject.
There is still a chance
to change attitudes.
Letís take actions before
itís too late.
