The sea has had enough and has gone on strike!  A light-hearted look at what an oceanless world would look like, reminding us why we should take better care of our most valuable resource. 

Life as we know it on Earth depends on our oceans. They provide us with the air we breathe, the food we eat, and even the water we drink. 

But our seas are threatened by pollution, over-fishing and carbon emissions, which we all contribute to and can take steps to halt. Let's all take action to keep our oceans, and our planet, healthy.
