Building a Movement of Ocean Stewardship

In Ireland we only have 9.4% of our ocean protected. We want to see this increase to at least 30% by 2030.

At Fair Seas we seek to protect, conserve and restore Ireland’s unique marine environment. Our ambition is to see Ireland become a world leader in marine protection, giving our species, habitats and coastal communities the opportunity to thrive.


Please sign our petition

As part of the global mission to protect 30% of the ocean, Ireland must take the steps necessary to fulfill its commitments. By joining the campaign and signing the petition, you help build the political pressure on the Irish Government to publish new Marine Protected Area Legislation without delay. 


Revitalising Our Seas

It’s vital that the Irish government develops strong and ambitious legislation allowing for 30% of Irish waters to be protected within Marine Protected Areas, including strictly protecting 10% of Irish waters to allow life in our ocean to not only survive but recover and thrive.
