Downstream Connections

The ocean is downstream from everything. Keep this in mind and continue to let everyone know. gives us a nice reminder. "The ocean is downstream of everything, so all of our actions, no matter where we live, effect the ocean and the marine life it holds. Those who live right on the coastline will have the most direct impact on the ocean, but even if you live far inland, there are many things you can do that will help marine life," wrote Jennifer Kennedy.

Her "ways to help the oceans" are also a good reminder that the big issues are hugely important like fighting climate change to avert ocean acidification but let's not forget smaller things we can all do to support healthy oceans: be energy efficient, avoid plastics especially single use, dispose of fishing line properly, and hang onto balloons.
