Wake up! It's time to save our Oceans!

Fishermen only keep the shark fins
If you've been following Poor Planet posts for a while, you might have noticed that many of my posts are more ore less related to the oceans. This is not a topic I purposely target. Oceans simply cover 70% of our planet's surface and for many decades, we've exploited the natural resources it holds, dumped all sorts of junk into it and took it for granted. Only now we start realizing the need and importance of protecting our oceans.

"We need to defend our oceans because without them, life on Earth wouldn't exist"

I highly recommend you watch the video below entitled "Drop into the Ocean", posted by Greenpeace. It covers most environmental issues our oceans face today and raises the alarm: Change is needed, and this video will show you how urgent it is!

Everyone can do its part for the environment. I've chosen to create this blog in order to raise awareness. If you want to take action, here are three ways:
  1. Begin by sharing this video around to your friends, colleagues and family.
  2. You can also sign a petition requesting the creation of the World's largest maritime reserve in the Coral Sea.
  3. Or go to the Greenpeace site and sign their petition as well.
