Save the Sea
“We need to respect the oceans and take care of them
as if our lives depended on it. Because they do.”
- Sylvia Earle
"The ocean touches you every day. With every drop of water you drink,
every breath you take, you are connected to the ocean."
"Far and away, the greatest threat to the ocean,
and thus to ourselves, is ignorance. But we can do something about that."
"No ocean, no life. No ocean, no us."
"You have to love it before you are moved to save it."
"Our past, our present and whatever remains of our future,
absolutely depend on what we do now."
"I have lots of heroes: anyone and everyone who does whatever they can
to leave the natural world better than they found it."
I encourage everyone to watch this important documentary “Mission Blue”.
