Whether we know it or not, many of us rely on international shipping for the products we use every day. Shipping not only plays a big role in the economy—it plays a big role in ocean health.

You’ve heard us talk before about shipping and its effects on the ocean, but now we want to hear from YOU. How much do you really know about one of the world’s biggest industries? Today, we’re going to put you to the test.

Take our shipping quiz and find out just how much you now about the impacts of shipping on our ocean. Then, learn more about the dangers of shipping and how we can make it more sustainable for our ocean, our planet and ourselves.

Shipping has long been a big part of global trade, but we’re seeing it expand and change in the era of climate change—including in the remote Arctic region. As seasonal sea ice melts due to our rapidly warming climate, passage through the Arctic is becoming easier for commercial vessels, and interest in shipping through the region is increasing. As more vessels travel through the Arctic, the risk of disrupting wildlife and impacting local communities increases—and so does the threat of pollution, including a major oil spill.

Shipping is an important part of our lives, but it needs to be done sustainably for the health of our ocean and climate. Smart shipping starts with understanding the problem: Test your knowledge with our shipping quiz!
