Accidents on oil platforms, swirls of plastic waste, overfishing … The oceans are no longer just places of longing and holiday destinations. In the last decades, pollution and exploitation put great pressure on them. How is the world’s largest ecosystem really doing today? Although we have always lived from and with the sea, it remains one of the last unknown territories on earth even the moon is better explored than the gigantic masses of water that are so important to our planet. This ignorance could cause the destruction of the oceans (and us!). In order to protect this sensitive ecosystem, we need to understand the connections between the actions of humans and the changes in marine life.
