“If I had to name the single most frightening and dangerous threat to the health of the Oceans, the one that stands alone yet is at the base of all others is ignorance: lack of understanding, a failure to relate our destiny to that of the Sea, or to make connection between the health of coral reefs and our own health, between the fate of the great whale and the future of humankind”
Sylvia A. Earle

It is up to you to start making a positive change. Everything starts with education.
