Sea the Truth

Promotional photo

At this very moment, the oceans are becoming more and more empty. If we don’t do something about it, we potentially face the biggest disaster in the history of humanity.

We still know so little of our planet!

We call it Earth but less than one-third is land while over two-thirds is water. We use that water as a dumping site for our waste, and as if it’s an inexhaustible “horn of plenty”.

Almost everywhere underwater photographer Dos Winkel dives he is faced with devastation. Taking a passive stance was not an option. He seizes every opportunity to use his photographs and tell the story of a world that is on the verge of vanishing.

Containing beautiful underwater photography to tell the story of a world that is vanishing, Sea the Truth is based on numerous scientific publications that examine the problems of seas and oceans.

Our most important ecosystem is on the verge of collapse. We need to act now and the best thing each of us can do is to quit eating animal-sourced seafood.

Guest Speaker: Mary Finelli, president of Fish Feel will tell us of the remarkable abilities of fish, why they deserve our respect and considerations, and about the many marvelous vegan seafood options that are available to us.
