"Our dying ocean is a reality. Last year a man contracted flesh eating bacteria and died after going scuba diving a few days after getting a tattoo.
Our marine eco-systems have been poisoned with chemicals, feces, agricultural run-off, pesticides, herbicides, plastic, PCB's, mercury, radiation, etc.
In British Columbia virus infested blood is being pumped through pipes directly into the sea. Fukushima is spewing tons of radioactive water into the sea everyday in Japan (since March 2011).
From every port and sewer in the world we dump, spew, and pump toxic filth into the sea.
We need to give our Ocean the time to repair the damage we have done.
And remember, when the Ocean dies, we all die!" 😓
