The ocean generates 50% of the oxygen we breathe, it regulates the climate and is an essential source of food, energy and life.
In fact, it is so vast that we often consider it limitless; able to satisfy our increasing needs and remaining immune to human
Although we cannot deny that something is changing.
For years, a huge quantity of metals, plastic and pesticides have been pouring into the ocean compromising its flora and fauna.

These are just little steps but, as you know, every great sea crossing must be dealt wave after wave.
