There are several ways in which I believe we can fight to protect our oceans and the first one and most important one (in my opinion) is to engage with members of the community who share a love for the same cause. Engaging and becoming part of this community will empower, not only, the individuals who join but the entire community. I believe we have an obligation to inform ourselves about the greatest threats that our oceans are facing so we can spread awareness about it to our friends, families, and colleagues. By doing this, we will unite so many people.
The final step (and the easiest) is to take specific actions to tackle the issues. I say this is the easiest one because I believe that if we manage to create a big, strong community, the change will come like a tidal wave. The biggest problem we have to tackle is the ignorance around the issues and, more importantly, the ignorant complicity with the deterioration of the oceans. Once we all push in the same direction, we will be able to move the world.
