A roundup of some of the top discussions from the new BluHope campaign, launched by the British High Commission in Malaysia on World Oceans Day, with the support of Sir David Attenborough and Dr Sylvia Earle
The ‘Blu Hope’ campaign will run until 12 June and will feature a series of presentations, webinars and videos to raise awareness of the importance of the world’s oceans, how plastic pollution is damaging ocean biodiversity and to encourage action in tackling marine pollution. We have selected some of the highlights of the week so far...
