Our Oceans Need Us

Since starting OMG, Olivia and Carter have been doing what they could to raise awareness to the issue of Ocean Acidification, Over Fishing and Plastic Pollution in our seas.  Recently we came across this amazing video which helps explain how all life is connected to our oceans and how our very existents is dependent on what we do to our oceans.

We wish to give special thanks to Céline Cousteau and the folks at Reefs at Risk Revisited for this impressive video and for making it all easy to understand and follow:
