End of the line?

Dear Friends

Some people are still under the illusion that the oceans are endless and that fish will go on forever – wrong!

Last night I saw a shocking but brilliant new film (produced by Born Free supporter, George Duffield) – The End of the Line – which exposes the devastation that humans are causing to the marine environment.  I sat, open-mouthed, like a cod gasping for air, as one fact after brought me to the inescapable conclusion that without action now the world’s fish are in dire peril and the 1.2 million people who rely on fish will face a bleak future. 

Of course, the question on everyone’s lips was what can we do about it?  If you go to www.endoftheline.com, you can find out!! 

Here’s what I am going to do. As a vegetarian, I cannot reduce my fish consumption but I can help get the message out. 

We each have choices.  It is a bit like Born Free.  We can choose to help animals in need or we can ignore them; we can choose to stop suffering or we can turn away; we can choose to try and save species or let them go to the wall.

The marine environment and all its inhabitants need more attention and more care before it is too late.  We can choose to do something about it or hasten the end of life on earth by doing nothing.

Blogging off!
