Sylvia Earle is one of those special people that have made a real impact for ocean conservation.
'In an interview with Yale Environment 360, Earle discusses how humanity needs to begin looking at fish in the same way we view wild creatures on land, how the current system of aquaculture... is folly, and how the massive influx of carbon dioxide into the world’s oceans is altering a precious balance that has existed for millions of years.'
In the interview Earle advocates 'we should have learned with whales. We should have learned with wildlife on the land that we have the power — through both our numbers and our technologies — to be able to find, kill, extract and market, to decimate, anything that swims in the ocean.'
She goes on to say 'Amazingly, we haven’t come to the realization that, like the whales, if you want them to recover from severe depletion, stop killing them. Just stop!'
Can't argue with that. Told you she was a hero.
