Australian seafood consumers urged to stop buying flake to protect sharks

The #DeepSea has the greatest diversity of life on Earth, but it's under threat from #DeepSeaMining - laws made to #DefendTheDeep aren't being enforced. Our 10-point plan means EU decision-makers have no excuses not to act to uphold #Biodiversity commitments to protect our oceans

Earth's oceans are huge carbon sinks, absorbing much damaging CO2. But plastic waste is harming this process. We talked to our lead plastics lawyer @tatianalujanr about plastic affecting the ocean's role in the carbon cycle and what we're doing to help:
