WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
For many millions of years, the ocean truly was a cradle of life, supporting millions of animals large and small in its fold. During the early parts of the Industrial Revolution, the ocean was a silent buffer – absorbing much of the carbon dioxide, pollutants and effluents human society was creating as by-products of progress. It has also, for years, supplied a growing demand for protein in most parts of the world. Unfortunately, large as she is, the ocean is not infinite, and nor are her resources or limits. Today we are very close to pushing those limits.
We who dwell on this planet need clean air, food, medicines for illnesses, a hospitable climate, recreation, inspiration and access to a source of inspiration and richness that is greater than ourselves or our own everyday lives. For these reasons, a healthy ocean is vital for human health.
We owe it to ourselves to nurture these resources for our own survival and that of our children and theirs.
