“The ocean gives us oxygen, it gives us food, it gives of joy. We give it plastic, saturate it with carbon, and relentlessly extract the life out of it,” said Sir Richard Branson during the World Oceans Day conference.

“The days of exploiting first and considering the consequences later must truly end,” he said in defense of setting aside the first 10 percent of ocean protection with a goal of a 30 percent protection ahead.
