WHY YOU SHOULD CARE
The planet is covered by 70% of water, and 80% of ALL LIFE live in the ocean
Ninety-one percent of plastic isn't recycled
It is estimated that by the year 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish
Twenty-five percent of all marine life live in coral reefs
Coral reefs are estimated to directly support over 500 million people
It is estimated that by 2050 more than 90% of the coral reefs will die

Hi! You've made it all the way down to the bottom of my site, so thank you for your interest in my conservation efforts!
After being exposed to all of our negative effects on the ocean, (including changing sea temperatures, increasing garbage floating around, effects of plastic on marine life, and how it comes back full circle affecting our consumption of pollution) really inspired me to take action by creating a social media presence to encourage a change.
Unlike other organizations or media groups I am not asking for donations for a change. I am asking for each visitor to absorb shared content and understand what is going on within our waters. To think twice about their everyday choices and how to make better ones. For every viewer to understand the effects of our decisions and to inspire each one to make the change that will prevent further damage to marine life and their wonderous ecosystem.
