Dear friends who love the ocean:
China is a large maritime country, with vast sea areas, long coastlines, rich marine resources, and diverse marine life. With the continuous advancement of China's maritime power and the general promotion of the marine consciousness of the whole people, the protection of marine resources and the environment and the construction of a marine ecological civilization have reached widespread consensus in all sectors of society.
In recent years, China has made many achievements in the construction of marine ecological civilization. However, affected by many factors such as concepts, management, and markets, the marine situation is still grim. The pressure on the development of marine resources is still high, the problems of marine ecology and the environment are still relatively prominent, and rare and endangered marine organisms lack comprehensive protection. These issues affect the hearts of each of us who love the sea.
The construction of marine ecological civilization is always on the way. Protecting the marine resources and environment requires the joint efforts of all sectors of society. In order to protect the blue ocean and the future of mankind, we have launched the following initiatives in conjunction with many marine non-profit organizations along the coast:
We call on all types of marine non-profit organizations to fully implement the important functions of serving the government, connecting with society, and uniting the public in accordance with the spirit of the Party Central Committee and the State Council on the construction of marine ecological civilization and the unified deployment of marine space governance by the Ministry of Natural Resources, widely publicize the concept and consciousness of marine ecological civilization, and actively organize marine public welfare actions, so that more people can see our actions and listen to our voices.
We call on friends from all walks of life and the majority of people who love the sea to start on their own, whether they are on the coast or the mainland. From now on, do not discard garbage to the ocean, do not harm or consume protected marine life, pay close attention to marine ecological problems, actively participate in beach cleaning operations, do a good job of garbage classification, and let more people participate in marine public welfare activities, guarding the beautiful ocean together.
For our oceans, our future, and to protect the last resources of humankind and the homes on which we depend, we call on everyone to join hands and cherish marine resources, protect the marine ecological environment, cherish marine life, and start from small things around us , Join the ranks of marine volunteers, and invest in the protection of blue homes!
