What we are doing to the oceans and its inhabitants is nothing short of criminal.
We are plundering the seas and leaving them empty and dying. We are chucking our insane piles of rubbish into the ocean as though it was simply our own personal garbage bin. We are destroying the balance of the extraordinary and complex eco-systems of the oceans, and thereby desecrating the planet as a whole. We, as a race, are apparently unstoppable….and yet millions of people are working at turning this behaviour around.
I am truly in awe of, and grateful to, all those on the front line trying to defend our seas: conservationists, cove monitors, sea-farers and fund-raisers….and many many more…
I am also glad to hear that the Taiji drive hunt season is officially over, until next September at least.
Here is my small oceanic offering, my ‘food for peace’. In the light of all the brutality and destruction.
Savoury Seaweed cakes, with a few classic flavours: lemon, mustard, capers, horseradish and mayonnaise. And also accompanied by just the faintest scent of sea air…….
But first, a brief introduction to seaweed.
