Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has – Margaret Mead
The future of the oceans is beginning to look a lot like a mass extinction. Pollution, over-fishing, habitat destruction, climate change, over-exploitation, ocean acidification and many other threats are contributing to their silent collapse. But the good news is that we can all take action to fix this.
I’ve been campaigning for ocean protection for the past 13 years. I discovered the wonders and beauty of our oceans whilst scuba diving in the Mediterranean where I also discovered the damages we are doing to our seas. A few more dives and trips to the Red Sea later and that was it! I was addicted to spreading awareness of the plight of our oceans.
My Ocean News is an online library of my favourite marine conservation news articles which highlight the good and the bad we are doing to our blue planet and the campaigns I support … Let’s all do our bit to help protect our oceans before it’s too late!
With every breathe we take, every drop of water we drink, we are connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live – Sylvia Earle
