Save Our Oceans

Today is World Oceans Day

Let’s all take a moment to remember how dependent we are on our planet’s oceans.

Then let’s consider some of the ways our oceans are being destroyed, including:
1. Global warming. 2. Ocean acidification. 3. Pollution. 4. Plastics. 5. Noise pollution.
6. Overfishing. 7. Gas, oil and mineral exploration/extraction.

Now, please, let’s all think of something we can do to help protect and preserve
the health of the oceans all life depends on — even if it’s just bringing our own bags
when we grocery-shop to reduce the use of plastics.

Allow Her Deepness Sylvia Earle to offer other insights and suggestions.

We can all do something. And we must. Time is running out.
