Blue Community Strategies For A Sustainable Planet & Healthy Oceans

The Ocean is facing the possibility of mass extinction according to a high level International workshop recently convened at Oxford University.

The key threats include: ocean acidification, climate change , ocean pollution, and overfishing at a rate that is 40% greater than the oceans can sustain.

Since most of the carbon emission as well as over 80% of ocean pollution is land based, there are several strategies that those concerned with sustainable tourism can implement to mitigate these concerns.

The twelve Blue Community strategies were developed in collaboration with the Walt Disney Animal, Science, and Environment team utilizing approaches that not only move tourism to sustainability, but are also proven to be cost effective.
