How’s this pretty song? Isabel Lucas and Angus Stone teamed up to make this. It’s World Ocean Day today…
This from Isabel and Angus’ peeps:
Protect our Coral Sea is supported by regional, national and international conservation organisations, who are calling on the federal government to establish a very large, world-class, highly protected marine park in the Coral Sea that will provide a safe haven for marine life and recognise its historic significance.
Less than 1% of the world’s oceans are fully protected – we need oceanic marine parks like national parks that are so common on land to safeguard the world’s marine creatures.
In the last 50 years, 90% of the world’s big ocean-going fish have disappeared due to overfishing. The Coral Sea is one of the last places on Earth where large marine animals can still be found in great numbers, making it a special place on a global scale. If the whole of the Coral Sea was fully protected, at about one million square kilometers, this new Coral Sea Marine Park would be the world’s largest marine park, and would make an unparalleled contribution to global marine conservation, lying as it does next to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
Angus Stone and Isabel Lucas believe:
Protect our Coral Sea gives everyone a ‘don’t it always seem to go ’til you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone’ opportunity to protect our precious Coral Sea for our children’s children to enjoy. We believe it is our duty, together, to protect & love these beautiful sea creatures and their ecosystems living in this great oceanic garden.
