Wendy Benchley, Global Voice for Ocean Protection, Supports Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary

April 3, 2018 – For Immediate Release

Wendy Benchley, a renowned global voice for protecting sharks and safeguarding our seas, has joined the SIGNMAPS Coalition as a supporter of the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS).

In a time when the UN is still well short of its target to protect just ten per cent of the world’s oceans, MAPS protects three per cent in a single international agreement. MAPS also stops all activity in the Arctic Ocean that harms the melting polar ice, our planet’s air conditioner, and ensures the regeneration of this essential ecosystem.

“Over the past forty years we have witnessed the wholesale destruction of Earth’s fragile marine ecosystems, including collapsing fisheries, massive coral reef die-offs, mega-ton piles of plastic pollution, and vast oxygen-choked dead zones across all corners of our blue planet,” says Benchley. “This destruction coupled with the powerful systemic pressures of climate change, which are rapidly warming the global ocean—accelerating both sea level rise and acidification—have created an unprecedented need to protect as much of the ocean as possible to allow our seas to recover and rejuvenate. To this end, we have made progress over the past decade in establishing more than 5,000 MPAs covering more than three per cent of the ocean, but the scientific consensus is that to create a fully sustainable ocean, we need to fully protect at least 30 per cent. That’s a nearly ten-fold difference that must be addressed.

Given this urgency, I strongly support the creation of the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS), which will establish all ocean waters north of the Arctic Circle as a marine protected area, free from oil drilling and all other exploitation by companies and countries—forever.”

To establish MAPS in international law, Parvati.org created the MAPS Treaty. The Treaty prohibits all harmful human activities in the Arctic Ocean including commercial shipping and fishing, military exercises, seismic testing and oil and gas extraction. It has been translated into all official UN languages, provided to all 193 UN member states, and shared with officials at COP21, COP22 and COP23.

“Wendy Benchley is a staunch advocate for ocean life, like her late husband Peter Benchley,” says Parvati.org founder Parvati Devi. “Her dedication to our oceans is lifelong, beautiful and inspiring. May all follow her lead and activate for a healthy world, beginning with the Arctic Ocean.”

The SIGNMAPS coalition is a growing group of organizations who agree that we need the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary now. Learn more at signmaps.org.

Citizens of all nations are urged to sign and share the MAPS petition at https://parvati.org, and to call on their governments to ratify MAPS immediately.

 

Dr. Roger Payne, President and Founder of Ocean Alliance, Supports Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary

Dr. Roger Payne, who brought to the world the song of the humpback whales, has joined the coalition of environmental leaders calling for the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary for the sake of all life on Earth.

The Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary is an immediate, simple and free solution to multiple pressing global issues. It stops all activity in the Arctic Ocean that harms the melting polar ice, our planet’s air conditioner, and ensures the regeneration of this essential ecosystem.

Dr. Payne says, “Back in 1961 we banned exploitation and resource extraction in the Antarctic. Let’s all get behind MAPS and save the Arctic to save the world.

To protect the critical Arctic Ocean ecosystem, Parvati.org created the international MAPS Treaty. The Treaty prohibits all harmful human activities in the Arctic Ocean including commercial shipping and fishing, military exercises, seismic testing and oil and gas extraction. It has been translated into all official UN languages, provided to all 193 UN member states, and shared with officials at COP21, COP22 and COP23.

“Everything we do that heats up the Earth heats up the Arctic much faster,” says Dr. Payne. “Everything we break or spill in the Arctic takes the Arctic vastly longer to recover from. Arctic permafrost holds four to five times as much carbon as all human activities have released worldwide since 1850 (including all burning of all fossil fuels). Arctic permafrost is about to thaw which will release much of its staggering quantity of CO2 and methane, which will make things hotter, which will thaw more permafrost, which will release yet greater amounts of methane and CO2, which will make things hotter still, and so on—a feedback loop that’s a race to oblivion. MAPS will slow this process.”

“Dr. Payne has given voice to Nature for decades,” says Parvati.org founder Parvati Devi. “He made the world aware of the majestic song of the whales and the need to preserve their populations. By protecting the Arctic Ocean, we do not just protect the many cetaceans who reside there. MAPS safeguards the Earth’s air conditioning system, that keeps our planet’s weather stable and prevents floods, droughts, natural disasters and food shortages worldwide. What happens in the Arctic affects us all. We at Parvati.org are deeply honoured by Dr. Payne’s support of MAPS and hope it will inspire many others to do the same.”

Citizens of all nations are urged to sign and share the MAPS petition at https://parvati.org, and to call on their governments to ratify MAPS immediately.

 

Former President James Michel of the Republic of Seychelles Endorses MAPS

March 5, 2018 – For Immediate Release

James Michel, former President of the Republic of Seychelles and the Founder and Chair of the James Michel Foundation, has given his support to the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS).

The Arctic Ocean’s vulnerable ecosystem is now at risk of commercial and political exploitation, which threatens to destabilize the region even more. A melted Arctic Ocean cannot maintain the Earth’s climate equilibrium, resulting in more frequent and intense weather events, threatened food production and water supply, poverty, disease, more climate refugees and ever-increasing suffering for all of humanity.

The Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary is an immediate, simple and free solution to multiple pressing global issues. It stops all activity in the Arctic Ocean that harms the melting polar ice, and ensures the regeneration of this essential ecosystem for the sake of all life on Earth.

“It is an honour and a pleasure to commit the full support of the James Michel Foundation to the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS),” says Michel. “In so doing, my Foundation aligns itself unreservedly with other like-minded organisations and individuals whose goals and objectives are to save our planet from both manmade and natural disasters. The Arctic – no matter where we come from and where we live – is the common heritage of all humans. Its fate and future have serious consequences for all of us, not least for Small Islands Developing States (SIDS). We are all too aware of these consequences.”

SIDS nations are particularly vulnerable to the heating of the Arctic Ocean and the loss of the reflective polar ice cap. Rising global ocean temperatures are causing mass bleaching events for coral reefs in tropical waters around the world. As oceans warm, air temperatures  also climb and accelerate the melting of land-based ice in the polar regions. The loss of the vast ice sheets cause billions of cubic meters of water to flow into the oceans which contribute to sea-level rise and disrupt the lives of millions in coastal regions and island nations.

“As the polar ice caps melt, our low-lying islands face the imminent threat of being submerged and our people becoming environmental refugees,” says Michel. “Some, for selfish short-term gains and profits, through their reckless activities and actions, are accelerating this process at an alarming rate. We cannot allow this to happen.”

To prevent exploitation of the key climate-regulating Arctic region, Parvati.org created the international MAPS Treaty. The MAPS Treaty prohibits all harmful and risky human activities in the Arctic Ocean including military exercises, commercial shipping, seismic testing and oil and gas extraction. It has been translated into all official UN languages, provided to all 193 UN member states, and shared with officials at COP21, COP22 and COP23.

“We are honoured that President Michel has given his support for MAPS,” says Parvati.org founder Parvati Devi. “Mr. Michel understands that we are all interconnected with the health of our oceans. The James Michel Foundation’s dedication to working together with people all over the world to protect nature is truly inspiring. We are delighted to partner with such an open-hearted statesman to realize MAPS.”

Citizens of all nations are urged to sign and share the MAPS petition at https://parvati.org, and to call on their governments to ratify MAPS immediately.

MAPS Treaty Sees Its First Country Signature

Feb 12, 2018 – For Immediate Release

Unwilling to accept that the fate of our world should rest in the hands of a few powerful people attached to the status quo, the all-volunteer Parvati.org, led by the award-winning Canadian musician Parvati, has a brilliantly simple and effective solution to the global crisis: MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. Championed through the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary Treaty, it overrides outdated provisions in the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and ends all exploitation in the Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle. MAPS stabilizes the melting polar ice and compels a global shift to renewable energy. The first of 99 nations has signed the Treaty: Samoa.

From the remote, forbidding icy reaches of the Arctic to the lapping tropical waters around the South Pacific islands, we are all connected. The loss of ice in the Arctic, called a “death spiral” by scientists, is linked with sea level rise that threatens to engulf these islands. Prime Minister Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi of Samoa knows what is at stake. Having repeatedly called on world leaders to take action to stop the Pacific Islands from drowning, he has now signed the MAPS Treaty and issued this strong statement:

“Samoa is pleased to support the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) Treaty. For us, this Treaty along with the Oceans Pathway reflects the richness of the oceans in biodiversity and their significant role in regulating temperatures, as well as the need to protect our planet’s cooling system so as to stabilize climate and sea levels. Small island states like Samoa which are on the front lines of the impacts of climate change see MAPS as a realizable solution to addressing pivotal climate change issues.”

Today, much of the Arctic Ocean is unprotected under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), which allows coastal states to exploit all natural resources within 200 nautical miles or more from their coastlines. That’s why Parvati.org created the MAPS Treaty as an addendum to the UNCLOS that protects all Arctic Ocean waters north of the Arctic Circle, regardless of jurisdiction. The MAPS Treaty has been translated into all official UN languages, provided to all 193 UN member states, and shared with officials at COP21, COP22, COP23 and UNGA 72.

In 2010, with the support of fans and well-wishers from around the world, Parvati travelled to the North Pole to give the northernmost musical performance ever, in order to raise awareness of the melting polar ice. Her first-hand experience of the beauty and vulnerability of the High Arctic led her to found Parvati.org in 2014 in response to the threat of seismic testing in the vulnerable Arctic Ocean ecosystem.

Globally respected scientific luminaries such as Dr. Jane Goodall and Dr. Sylvia Earle are among the growing chorus of voices calling for this sanctuary which was born from the deep desire to be of service to our hurting world. Dr. Goodall says, “It is hugely important to establish the proposed Sanctuary.” Dr. Earle says MAPS is “an idea whose time has come”. Leading biologist Dr. E. O. Wilson calls for 50% of the Earth to become conservation areas to prevent mass extinction. MAPS creates the biggest marine protected area in history, an immediate and powerful solution to the unprecedented threat facing our planet today.

Please be part of the change our world needs. Sign and share the MAPS petition at https://parvati.org, and call on your government to ratify the MAPS Treaty immediately.

 

 

A LETTER FROM THE CEO

As I write this update, my heart is full of gratitude to you. Together, we have made 2017 the best year yet. MAPS: the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary is closer than ever. Let’s celebrate the holidays with a fabulous roundup of our successes for the planet this year.

WE ARE 3 YEARS OLD

December 14, 2017 marked our third birthday! Three years ago, a small core group of us incorporated the not-for-profit Parvati.org to stop the planned seismic testing off Clyde River in Canada’s Arctic. With love for our planet, we volunteered countless hours and our personal savings. We realized our world needs bold and decisive action to protect all life. So we created the MAPS proposal, which became a global treaty making a vital addendum to the outdated United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea. Then we spread the word. You helped us with donations, petition signatures and supported us every step of the way. We could not do this without you!

THE SUPREME COURT OF CANADA STOPS SEISMIC TESTING

Happily, whales and narwhals in Canada’s Arctic are safe this holiday from the devastating blast of seismic testing. Did you know that the sound of a seismic airgun is 100,000 times louder than the sound of a jet engine? Oil and gas companies use airguns to blast the ocean floor every 10 seconds, 24 hours a day. We rallied together as one family, knowing that we could not let this happen. Together, our urgent calls for a safe planet were heard. The plans for seismic testing off Clyde River were paused for two years – and now they have been quashed for good by the Supreme Court of Canada!

A NEW MARINE PARK IS BORN

When we discovered expired Shell oil lease permits in Canada’s Arctic, we allied with Greenpeace and WWF and brought this shocking revelation to light. In so doing, we sparked a national outcry for change. Shell has finally relinquished all claim to the sensitive Lancaster Sound area and the Tallurutiup Imanga/Lancaster Sound marine park is now going ahead, paving the way for the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary.

PARVATI.ORG GOES GLOBAL

What started off as a few friends volunteering time to support a healthy world, has gone global. The amazingly selfless and broadhearted MAPS team of volunteers includes people from Serbia, Ghana, Uganda, India, Pakistan, England, Canada, USA, Mexico and France, proving that MAPS matters to all life on Earth.

In 2017, we were overjoyed to welcome Sally Ranney to Parvati.org’s Board of Advisors. Sally deeply understands the urgent necessity of MAPS. She is the co-founder of the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network, and the president of the American Renewable Energy Institute.

THE SIGNMAPS COALITION ACTIVATES

Luminaries in science and ecology like Dr. Jane Goodall, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Louie Psihoyos, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, Julia Butterfly Hill and more agree: we need MAPS now. Organizations from all over the world were moved in 2017 to step up to endorse MAPS and help get the urgent word out.

COMMERCIAL FISHING IS BANNED

Ten countries have come together to keep fishing out of the Arctic high seas for the next 16 years. It’s a great beginning! We have been calling on these nations to end commercial fishing in the Arctic permanently with MAPS. We can now build on this success.

PARVATI.ORG RECEIVES UNITED NATIONS DESIGNATION

In 2017 we have been accredited by the United Nations and given presentations on the importance of MAPS at several key United Nations events. We are meeting with presidents and prime ministers and doing everything we can on the front lines to see that MAPS becomes realized now. Your donations make it possible for our all-volunteer team to help UN member nations understand the urgency for MAPS.

STAY TUNED…

We have even bigger news coming very soon about the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary Treaty! Follow @ParvatiOfficial to be the first to find out!

Donate now to help keep our planet cool

MAPS is possible because of you. We need your petition signatures, donations, volunteering, spreading the word, and passionate support to keep the planet cool.

May it be a happy and peaceful 2018 for the Arctic, for our oceans, and for us all.

With love for a healthy planet,
Parvati

Less Polar Ice Means More Forest Fires. Declare MAPS and Stop the Burning.

December 7, 2017 – For Immediate Release

The worst fire season ever is taking place in California after a summer of record heat left the forests dry. Over 9.1 million acres have burned across the United States this year, devastating homes and ecosystems and filling the air with pollution. The situation is critical. We need to turn down the heat, by establishing the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary.

The polar ice is the planet’s air conditioner. But it’s melting fast. Sea ice reflects back 50% of the sun’s radiation. When it melts, the open water it leaves behind reflects only 10% – absorbing the rest. The Arctic Ocean now has 75% less summer ice than half a century ago. Parts of the Arctic Ocean are now 7F warmer than usual.

Scientists say the Arctic is in a “death spiral”. The more its ice melts, the warmer our world gets. The warmer our world gets, the more the ice melts. We need to stop this vicious cycle, now. 15,000 scientists call on humanity to change our ways. Leading biologists say we must protect 50% of the planet.

MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, is the solution. It removes the option of Arctic oil, compelling a pivot to renewable energies. It shifts the global paradigm from short-term greed to long-term good. It allows this crucially vulnerable ecosystem to regenerate so that the Arctic ice can cool the planet again.

“Nature is warning us more and more loudly every day that we must make immediate steps to protect the planet and all life on it,” says Parvati.org founder Parvati Devi. “The exploitation and pollution that led to the melting of the polar ice were done for human gain. Yet, they ultimately come at a tremendous cost to all life. Disasters like this year’s fires are just the beginning, if we do not change our ways now. There is no more time for anything but bold and decisive action to protect our planet. We need the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary now.”

Luminaries such as Dr. Jane Goodall, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Louie Psihoyos, Peter Neill, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez and Julia Butterfly Hill have endorsed the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, which declares the Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle an international peace park, free from exploitation of all kinds, in perpetuity. It is a simple, effective and immediate solution to the unprecedented threat facing our entire world.

Parvati.org created the international MAPS Treaty to prevent this key and vulnerable region from becoming exploited and exacerbating extreme weather, food shortages, flooding and other issues around the world. The MAPS Treaty has been translated into all official UN languages, provided to all 193 UN member states, and shared with officials at COP21, COP22, COP23 and UNGA 72.

Citizens of all nations are urged to sign and share the MAPS petition at https://parvati.org, and to call on their governments to ratify the MAPS Treaty immediately.

Ban Fishing? A Great Start. Now Declare MAPS.

December 6, 2017- For Immediate Release

A sixteen-year ban on fishing in the Arctic Ocean is great news. But there are even bigger threats to the vulnerable Arctic ecosystem that we need to address immediately.

The Arctic polar ice, which regulates temperatures and weather patterns for the entire planet, is in what scientists now call a “death spiral”. There is 75% less late-summer ice now than there was half a century ago. Parts of the Arctic Ocean are 4C warmer than usual. Yet, in the face of this crisis, some interests seek only to exploit the vanishing ice and accelerate the destruction by seeking oil or other natural resources in the previously inaccessible seabed. This must be stopped – immediately and forever. What happens in the Arctic affects us all.

Banning all commercial fishing in the Arctic Ocean has always been included in MAPS (the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary). But MAPS goes much further, to ensure the protection we need. It is a life-saving, game-changing initiative to stop all activity in the Arctic Ocean that harms the melting polar ice. At the same time, it compels an immediate global pivot to renewable energies, and a paradigm shift from short-term greed to long-term good. This profoundly simple yet effective solution to so many problems facing our world must be implemented now, before time and ice run out.

Luminaries such as Dr. Jane Goodall, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Louie Psihoyos, Peter Neill, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez and Julia Butterfly Hill have endorsed the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, which declares the Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle an international peace park, free from exploitation of all kinds, in perpetuity.

Many leading scientists now call for half the earth to become protected areas. 15,000 scientists recently signed an urgent warning to the world that we must change our ways to prevent global catastrophe. As Dr. Earle says, “MAPS is an idea whose time has come.”

To support the speedy realization of MAPS, the Canadian not-for-profit Parvati.org took the unprecedented step of creating the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary Treaty as an addendum to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. This fully legal and binding document has been translated into all official UN languages, provided to all 193 UN member states, and shared with officials at COP21, COP22, COP23 and UNGA 72. It enters into force with the signatures of 99 nations.

“The international agreement to stop fishing in the Arctic Ocean shows that world leaders are willing to come together for the sake of the collective good,” says Parvati.org founder, the musician, activist, yogini and author Parvati. “MAPS is the logical next step. I call on all nations involved in this agreement to sign the MAPS Treaty now.”

Everyone can make a difference for MAPS by signing and sharing the MAPS petition at https://parvati.org, and calling on their governments to ratify the MAPS Treaty immediately.

The North Pole Can Help the South Pole – with MAPS

November 29, 2017 – For Immediate Release

There is growing concern about ice loss in the Antarctic and its potential impact on global sea levels – and with good reason. The ice caps at both poles are our planetary guardians, preserving life, stable weather, and food and water. But one of the most important ways to safeguard the Antarctic is to protect its sister, the Arctic Ocean.

Decades-old agreements have kept natural resource exploitation out of the Antarctic. A number of marine conservation areas now exist around its land base. However, the same cannot be said of the Arctic. Almost no significant protection exists for the Arctic Ocean, whose ice volume in summer is 75% less than it was 50 years ago. Even as parts of the Arctic Ocean are now 4C warmer than normal, business interests seek to exploit this vulnerable ecosystem and the minerals in its seabed. This must not happen. The Arctic ice stands between us and global calamity. To do anything that contributes to its demise is actively suicidal behavior.

MAPS (the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary) is a life-saving, game-changing initiative to stop all activity in the Arctic Ocean that harms the melting polar ice. At the same time, it compels an immediate global pivot to renewable energies, and a paradigm shift from short-term greed to long-term good. This is the urgently needed intervention that will stop ice loss – at both poles. This profoundly simple yet effective solution to so many problems facing our world must be implemented now, before time and ice run out.

Luminaries such as Dr. Jane Goodall, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Louie Psihoyos, Peter Neill, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez and Julia Butterfly Hill have endorsed the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, which declares the Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle an international peace park, free from exploitation of all kinds, in perpetuity.

It enters into force with the signatures of 99 nations.

“Our planet is in crisis, headed towards unimaginable danger with a vulnerable Arctic,” says Parvati.org founder, the musician, activist, yogini and author Parvati. “There is no time for anything but the most bold and courageous actions for a healthy world: MAPS now. Let us all remember our interconnection and act to protect Nature and all life on Earth – including our own.”

Everyone can make a difference for MAPS by signing and sharing the MAPS petition at https://parvati.org, and calling on their governments to ratify the MAPS Treaty immediately.

POWERWALLS IN PUERTO RICO AND WHY IT MATTERS

Crisis calls us to step out of our status quo mindset and meet the needs of the moment with compassion, courage and forward thinking. The communities devastated by September 2017’s monster hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria are among the latest examples of this call. One of the most significant responses comes in the form of Tesla’s solar energy.

Hurricane Irma edged past the tiny American island territory of Puerto Rico, leaving a million people without power, but leaving the island functional enough to serve as a base for relief efforts to other harder-hit islands in the vicinity. Then, two weeks later, Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico directly at just below Category 5 intensity, destroying much of the island’s infrastructure and leaving the entire population without electricity.

The effect has been catastrophic and is still unfolding, as relief efforts scramble to get food, water, fuel and supplies to people cut off by washed-out roads. Hospitals and nursing homes barely manage to keep the lights on with gas-powered generators to deliver the most essential care. Millions of lives are at risk from the heat, and from waterborne diseases such as cholera. The situation is dire.

Rebuilding the electrical grid will take months. Until roads are rebuilt, many areas will not even be accessible for electrical workers. Conventional solutions are too slow to address the urgent need.

That’s where Tesla has stepped in. In the short term, this maker of electric cars, batteries and solar panels is bringing in hundreds of its Powerwall batteries to the island. These batteries are built to store solar power for homes. Tesla also has workers on the island to repair or install solar panels. With this, people do not need to wait for the electrical grid to be rebuilt. They can start immediately to regain power to their homes.

In the long term, Tesla has extended the offer to rebuild Puerto Rico’s entire electrical grid for solar. It has already built solar infrastructure for other smaller islands such as Samoa, and the governor of Puerto Rico has responded to Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk with “@elonMusk Let’s talk. Do you want to show the world the power and scalability of your #TeslaTechnologies? PR could be that flagship project.”

There can be no minimizing the devastation that Puerto Rico faces or its urgent need for assistance. The situation is simply so dire that “leapfrog” solutions such as a total solar rebuild become even more feasible than any attempt to restore the status quo.

Similarly, our global situation is dire. Natural disasters are on the rise. As the polar ice melts, the oceans are heating up, fueling hurricanes. Monstrous storms like Irma and Maria will become increasingly common and leave devastation in their wake, until we take action. That is why Parvati.org is committed to the realization of the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) by the end of 2018. MAPS establishes all ocean waters north of the Arctic Circle as a marine protected area, free from oil drilling and all other exploitation. It safeguards the polar ice, keeps our weather patterns balanced and compels a shift to sustainable energy.

“We need to think on much bigger scales and much more ambitious timelines to keep our planet safe and healthy,” says Parvati.org founder Parvati. “We no longer have the luxury to work incrementally towards urgently needed protection. MAPS is not an end goal, but a baseline necessity. Thank you Elon Musk for your forward thinking vision, and for what you are doing for Puerto Rico and the planet. May the world be inspired to swiftly make the essential pivot to renewables.”
