Many of you may have watched the very popular Netflix documentary Seaspiricay. I was deeply touched by the wrong doings by the fishing industry and the disgraceful damage they have done and continue to do to our oceans. The beautiful creatures of our oceans do not have a voice to fight against this, however Sea Shepherd are doing their utmost to change this. As a mother who wants my children to have a bright, safe and abundant world to live in, as well as a human who believes we are destroying the earth unncessarily, supporting Sea Shepherd and the work they are doing only seems like the right thing to do. Below is a small introduction to the work Sea Shepherd have and continue to do.
'Our mission is to protect defenseless marine wildlife and end the destruction of habitat in the world’s oceans. Since 1977, Sea Shepherd has used innovative direct-action tactics to defend, conserve and protect the delicately-balanced biodiversity of our seas and enforce international conservation laws.
Protect Marine Habitat
The ocean environment is an intricately-balanced ecosystem designed to support and sustain marine wildlife. To truly thrive, they need safe sanctuaries to feed, mate and raise their young without pollution, destructive fishing gear, plastics and other marine debris that choke marine wildlife and destroy their habitats. Sea Shepherd opposes the pollution of the fragile ecosystem through off-shore drilling and fisheries, as well as the destruction of coral reefs from trawling, and the loss of coastal nesting sites from commercial development.
“We fight to preserve the planet because we recognize that we share the Earth with other species and that their well-being is inexorably linked to ours. We fight to preserve the planet because it is a matter of self-defense and we’ve taken the fight to sea.” – Captain Peter Hammarstedt '
