HEIRS TO OUR OCEANS. That’s who we are, along with your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and newly-spawned zygotes.
Heirs to our oceans are the next generation and the future generations who will inherit this planet and all that comes with it…. after your generation is done with it.
We live just near the Pacific Ocean. We have learned about and seen the atrocities to our ocean. We have studied what is happening to know why action is needed to end the human impact on our planet’s oceans.
We are sad. We are mad. We are motivated. We are inspired. We are hopeful. We are tenacious. And together we are taking action.
