Each year, millions of species of fish, mammal, and bird species are negatively affected by the by-products humans both knowingly and inadvertently deposit into our oceans. Not only does this cause a mass-exodus of different types of wildlife in areas, creating unbalance in the food chain, but can even cause issues in industries that humans rely on, such as fishing.
These populations of animals, and the areas they live in, are crucial to the ongoing health of the world’s oceans and coastlines. Many organizations have met these growing challenges with new ideas on how to lessen our collective footprint, and have raised their voices in support of actions that help to spread awareness.
“Leading Edge” is teaming with many of these organizations and various conservationists to create content educating about the importance of our oceans, and the steps being taken to effectively lessen our affect on them. By creating educational segments for Public Television, viewers can understand the stakes of this critical issue, and how it affects the world.
The series is distributed to public television stations throughout the United States and is not distributed through PBS. Please visit the Leading Edge website at http://www.leadingedgeseries.com for more information.
