Introduction Ocean Witness

Ocean Witness is a platform to elevate voices from those affected by changes in the ocean and to amplify good practices of those contributing to positive change. The stories shared on the platform, through videos, photos and narratives, make problems more tangible through first-hand accounts. They create awareness about the importance of protecting oceans, not only for biodiversity goals but also for human wellbeing, e.g. food security and sustainable livelihoods. So far, almost 40 Ocean Witnesses have shared their inspiring story. 

In this video, Ocean Witness Emanuel from Peniche, Portugal shares his story.
