Waves of Hope

Lewis Pugh Foundation

Only 13% of the world’s oceans can be clas­si­fied as wilder­ness, untouched by human activ­i­ties. The South­ern Ocean is one of these rare areas – it is imper­a­tive that this remain­ing wilder­ness is pro­tect­ed as soon as possible.

The Waves of Hope project aims to fos­ter an appetite and build sup­port for Antarc­tic Ocean pro­tec­tion, high­light­ing the urgent need for a net­work of Marine Pro­tect­ed Areas – over 4 mil­lion square kilo­me­tres of South­ern Ocean pro­tec­tion, in what would be the largest sin­gle con­ser­va­tion act in history.
