Waking up to the news of today's world might, at times, feel defeating. The environmental setback and damages caused by demands for more production to satisfy our world population's ever-growing need, push the limits of nature. We are sacrificing health for wealth. I feel as if our work as conservationists and lovers of the ocean is nothing but a small drop in the sea and will never make a difference. It is hard at times to read about one victory and ten defeats; everywhere we turn, we read about the extinction of species every minute, ravaging of land, plastic pollution doomed to outnumber the fish in the ocean, and the list continues.
How do we move forward when it feels like we are always being pulled back?
