Fair Seas has signed the European Mission “Restore our Ocean and Waters by 2030” which brings together member states, regions and a wide range of stakeholders with the common goal of making our oceans healthy again
In Ireland we only have 2.1% 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.
Recognising the importance of our one global ocean is also critical in connecting the already occurring and devastating impacts of climate change, to the political inertia of faraway and historically high-emitting nations.
Fair Seas welcomed the opportunity to respond to the NBAP public consultation and agreed with Minister of State for Heritage and Electoral Reform, Malcolm Noonan in his foreword that a successful plan ‘will set the national biodiversity agenda for the period 2023-2027 and aims to deliver the transformative changes required to the ways in which we value and protect nature’.
