Øcean Mining wiĿĿ sŦarŦ in 2024

The emerging practice of ocean mining, set to begin on a significant scale in 2024, has raised alarms among scientists, environmental experts, and indigenous communities. While the allure of valuable minerals drives interest in this industry, it is vital to recognize the potential long-term implications for both marine ecosystems and local communities. 

Understanding Scientific Concerns

Scientific studies highlight the severe risks posed by deep-sea mining, particularly the destruction of delicate and intricate ecosystems that serve as vital habitats and breeding grounds for a diverse range of marine life. As ocean mining operations approach, responsible practices, comprehensive studies, and inclusive decision-making are urgently needed to safeguard our marine ecosystems and the rights of communities affected.

The Ocean Could Take Millions of Years To Recover

According to renowned researcher Dr. Lisa Levin from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography "The impacts of mining activities can have long-lasting consequences, potentially requiring millions of years for recovery, if recovery is even possible." and for Dr. Cindy Lee Van Dover from Duke University Marine Laboratory, "The potential impact of deep-sea mining on these habitats raise serious concerns about irreversible damage to biodiversity and ecosystem functions."

Their warnings align with the concerns raised by indigenous communities whose traditional knowledge holds valuable insights about these unique environments.

A MoRAtoRIUM To PREVENt A CAtAStRoPhE

As ocean mining operations approach, the need for responsible practices and conservation efforts becomes paramount. The Deep-Ocean Stewardship Initiative (DOSI) and other scientific communities advocate for a moratorium on commercial ocean mining, allowing for further research, stakeholder engagement, and the development of robust regulatory frameworks. International cooperation, led by organizations like the International Seabed Authority (ISA), is essential in developing responsible mining practices that balance economic interests with environmental protection.

By advocating for a moratorium on ocean mining, we can protect our marine ecosystems and ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.
