In less than two months, world leaders will take part in the Rio+20 Earth Conference where they will have a chance to tackle critical sustainable development issues. It's countdown time but governments still have time to make strong decisions that will shape a better future ensuring the kind of healthy ocean needed for sustainable development for billions of people.
This could be a once in a decade chance to reach a global agreement ensuring that our ocean is protected for the future.
The theme of this meeting is "The Future We Want," and a new animation from the Pew Environment Group and the Zoological Society of London highlights the current choices before governments for the ocean.
World leaders must ask two important questions: Where do we want to be in 2050 and can we make the right decisions in 2012 to make this occur? If the Rio talks are successful it will give the world renewed hope that the promise of stronger international stewardship of our ocean will be translated into action. That is a future we all want.
Please watch, share and tweet to galvanise action for the oceans.
