More than 60 percent of the world’s reefs are currently threatened by local human activities.

Love when I can share something that makes sense to me, like this article by David Q. aka The Good Human. (pictures added by me for the purpose of my blog). ~Lynn H.

If we do not collectively raise our voices, force ourselves to be heard over the din, and start forcing progress rather than just talking to each other in comfortable little circles, we are taking millions of years of evolutionary development straight to the end and right over a cliff in record time. As the end of all life and of the human spirit approaches due to our inaction and concern for our home, we are choosing the path of least resistance, of killing ourselves off quietly and Continue reading
