Mankind’s Greatest Achievements
When it comes to mankind’s greatest achievements, environmental awareness is certainly not one of them. Unfortunately, it is the exact opposite. The reckless destruction of various ecosystems over land and in our oceans will end up bringing own downfall if we do not take action soon.
The team at Seaspiracy show—in glaring fashion—how hobbled our oceans are and how important they are for our own survival. Our own plastic waste is only the tip of an enormous iceberg that many people are not even aware of.
The fishing industry is much more than our romantic idea of sustainable fishing on small boats—it is a huge machinery that silently accepts both the destruction of nature and the unnecessary mass killing in the form of bycatch. Overfishing not only leads to the extinction of several species of marine life, but also endangers our own ecosystem enormously. Our seas and oceans are four-fold better at being a carbon sink when compared to our rainforests, absorbing and generating 85% of our oxygen needs. To ensure that our source of oxygen does not dry up, it is necessary to protect this sensitive ecosystem with all its creatures.
Seaspiracy has been an eye-opener for us at “The Better World Foundation.” We want to support the Seaspiracy project and raise awareness of how serious the problem is, but more importantly, talk about the consequences we will be facing if we don’t do something soon. The Seaspiracy team is committed to approaching governments and leaders and getting them to act. They will also continue to report on the global situation with the goal of creating sustainable food awareness.
