emergency petition to save our oceans

Have you seen the documentary The 11th Hour?

Much like visiting a battery hen farm will likely turn you vegetarian,
watching this doco will shock you into taking positive action to minimise your own environmental footprint.

I’m one of the 17 million (current) Avaaz members who recognises the need for a global voice to draw attention and ultimately impact positive change regarding social, economic, environmental and political issues

“Avaaz empowers millions of people from all walks of life to take action on pressing global, regional and national issues, from corruption and poverty to conflict and climate change. Our model of internet organising allows thousands of individual efforts, however small, to be rapidly combined into a powerful collective force.”

Today I received an urgent call to arms from Avaaz & Leonardo DiCaprio to support the campaign to stop certain world governments from opening sections of the marine sanctuaries of the Antarctic ocean (Ross Sea & East Antarctia) to industrial fishing.

Will you support this campaign too?

  1. I have not seen the trailer for this movie, but I am in agreement with you. We take our Earth for granted in so many ways. I don’t understand how people can be so flippant about our home. It saddens me, but then I am moved and grateful for those such as yourself and others, who are taking a stand of action.
