Earth Day

Today is Earth Day.
People all over the world are coming together to celebrate the natural wonders of our planet and to dedicate themselves to preserving those wonders for future generations.
In the southern Line Islands, the Ocean Now expedition is showing us just how rich and diverse our ocean can be--and what we risk losing if humans continue to pollute, overfish, and injure our planet's natural ecosystems. Precious few pristine and undamaged coral reefs remain, so it's up to us to raise awareness about the need to protect these rare gems.
We must all do our part, no matter how big or small, we can all make a difference!
