What you can do

Ocean ecosystems are impacted by global increases in carbon dioxide (CO2). CO2 is absorbed by the ocean and causes warming, leading to rising sea levels and ocean acidification. All of these impacts alter the way in which ecosystems function. This ranges from organisms’ abilities to find food, reproduce, and simply survive.

Our online activities – sending emails, streaming videos and even searching – has a hidden impact on our carbon footprint. Globally, data centres, (which store and process our online information), emit as much CO2 as the entire commercial airline industry. An easy way to reduce your digital carbon footprint is to switch your search browser to a more environmentally friendly option. Some even plant trees as you search.
