"There is a fundamental disconnect between what we know in ocean science and what the majority of the population knows. (...) If we give people that knowledge, then they are going to start making the right decisions" Peter Thomson, the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for the Ocean
"About 70% of Earth's surface is covered by water, and the coast, which forms the interface between land and water, is the sight of a particular array of geomorphic processes and a range of landforms. For example, waves and tides involve movement and dissipation of large amounts of energy capable of causing rapid and spectacular changes in landforms along coasts. Shoreline and coastal features (e.g., dunes, berms, reefs, and barrier islands) are critical for protecting the inland areas from storm events and high-energy waves." https://www.nps.gov/subjects/geology/coastal-geology.htm
"The 50 marine sites on UNESCO's World Heritage List comprise at least 21% of the global area of blue carbon ecosystems and 15% of global blue carbon assets - carbon stores that are equivalent to about 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions in 2018. Their protection plays a central role in storing carbon from the atmosphere. But degradation of these ecosystem can also release billions of tons of greenhouse gases." https://whc.unesco.org/en/blue-carbon-report
