Oceans Alive

Did you know That over 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by saltwater oceans or, that our wellbeing is totally dependent on these same oceans, and not just for beachside fun and seafood.

The oceans help us breathe by producing half our oxygen, absorb fifty times more Carbon Dioxide than the atmosphere and provide ingredients for medicines we use to fight cancer, arthritis,Alzheimer's and heart disease. How have we repaid this favour? By dumping eight million tonnes of plastic into the sea every year, contributing to global warming and overfishing.

When David Attenborough highlighted this on his ground-breaking Blue Planet TV documentaries. The World sat up and listened. 88% of viewers said they would change their habits as a result. We all need to do so. More than a million birds and 100,000 sea mammals and turtles die each year from eating plastic waste or getting tangled in it.  It is a global imperative to keep our oceans free of pollutants and allow them to help us live our lives healthily – as they have since the birth of time. Humanity depends on it.

The statistics tell a vividly depressing story. People in many of our communities face a life of few choices, sparse or empty dinner tables and children born to fail.  Much of the richness
