Taking oceans for granted must stop, urges world’s fastest yachtswoman

6 June 2020

Our oceans are unexplored, misunderstood and under threat; that’s the message for World Oceans Day – on Monday 8 June – from the world’s fastest yachtswoman, Dona Bertarelli.

In an interview with UN News’s Daniel Johnson, Ms. Bertarelli explains how she hopes to draw on her close bond with the high seas – and her new appointment as Special Adviser for the Blue Economy for the United Nations trade and development body, UNCTAD – to help protect marine life for the good of everyone on this planet.
