Losing Nemo: what’s happening to our oceans

This short film from The Black Fish organization highlights the shocking truth about what is happening to our oceans right this minute. Greenderella posted this video and I had to pass it on. Last year I went to the Philippines and snorkeled for the first time. I will forever remember it as the summer I fell in love with the ocean. It’s like a whole other world… and we’re completely destroying it.

Protecting our oceans is more than just keeping marine ecosystems healthy and alive, it’s about helping ourselves as well. I wrote an article a couple years ago where I mentioned that 70% of the world’s oxygen comes from the ocean.

There are many things one can do to avoid supporting treacherous types of fishing. I, myself, am a vegan, sign petitions/write letters, and do my best to spread the news about what’s going on. You can do this, too! Check out the video to see the figures and find out what you can do to help.
