Why isn't restoring the ocean a more pressing issue?
With all of the talk about climate change, air pollution, and other areas of interest in conservation; why isn't a greater spotlight being placed on the issues going on inside of our ocean ecosystems? Overfishing, plastic particle pollution, rising acidification, and oil spills are all well documented and known to be detrimental to human survival, so it's beyond me why so little is being done to protect and restore our largest and most diverse natural resource.
So why isn't protecting the ocean a bigger deal?
What can be done to make it a top priority?
