Do you know the number one thing you can do to protect the ocean?
Learn! (and spread the word) Learn all you can about the threats facing the ocean and marine life. First and foremost, Global Warming (Climate Change/Abrupt Climate Change) is the number one threat not only to marine life but to all of our ways of life as well. The debate is over. It is happening. Only the magnitude and details, such as whether we've reached a tipping point yet, remain. Now is the time to act. To learn all about Global Warming/Climate Change, what it really is, what very likely will happen, and what we can/should really do about it, you should see these videos:
