Ocean Awareness: It’s Our Turn to Take Care of the Ocean

The ocean has been providing us not just food and water but even recreation and livelihood.  Its abundance is simply immeasurable but it’s disheartening to know that not only do people are taking more than he needs but is also showing no regard at all.  Evidently, people lack ocean awareness.

If we’ll only look, we’ll see

Have you seen the photos of surfers encountering massive trash ‘surfing’ with them?

Have you seen the photos of marine animals, sick, disfigured, dying or worst dead, because they got caught up with trash or mistakenly taken it for food?

Have you seen the studies or news about fish, (yes, the ones we’re serving to our family) containing alarming levels of mercury?

Haven’t we seen enough?

Show gratitude by creating ocean awareness

Yes, we should have been more thankful to the abundance the ocean has always been providing us.  And yes, we really messed it up so bad that we’re now feeling the effects of our own doing.

But, NOW, will be a good time to start making changes.

What you do will matter.  Don’t underestimate your power.  You can change the world by starting with yourself.

Show your gratitude to the ocean by being more responsible with disposing your trash.  Create ocean awareness – to your family, to your friends, to your community – until our collective forces will be enough to protect our ocean from the ‘big’ offenders.

Let’s create ocean awareness by being proactive, by letting our voices heard – until we’re loud enough that they couldn’t ignore us.

The ocean takes care of us.  Now it’s our turn now to do the same.

Let’s show our gratitude, let’s create ocean awareness.
