Letter Of Support
“Most people don’t realise the importance of our oceans. Given that most of the air we breathe comes from the oceans, they truly are our primary life support.
Across the entire planet, our oceans are in trouble. Fisheries have collapsed or are in a rapid state of decline. Plastics and toxins can now be found right through the entire ocean food web. The Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef system is dying, with over 50% of the reef already lost primarily due to the impacts of climate change.
The ability of our oceans to continue supporting life on earth, truly hangs by a thread. We must act now. I take my hat off to the lads of Aqua Atlantic. Two men, the Atlantic and one purpose, knowing full well the sacrifices that must be made by us all if we have any chance in saving our oceans. Together we will stand fast to defend, conserve and protect our oceans, sacrificing time away from loved ones in defence of our oceans, in defence of life on planet earth.
On behalf of everyone at Sea Shepherd, thank you to George, Matt and all the team at Aqua Atlantic. We are thrilled to have you as an ally in the battle to defend the world’s oceans. Wishing you a safe and rewarding journey and know that we are with you all the way”.
For the Oceans,
Managing Director - Sea Shepherd Australia
