Freediving with Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin & Green Sea Turtles has been one of the great honours of my very blessed life. In addition to the joy however is the anger and sadness of knowing that the marine environment is being raped to the point of total collapse. Whereas peoples desire to consume fish means fishing line is left in the oceans and this monofilament line then entangles marine life such as Sea Turtles and cuts off blood flow to the point of losing limbs or even strangling them to death. Peoples desire to consume ever more fish means commercial fishing operations are stripping the oceans of fish in a most insane and unsustainable way, with Dolphins and other 'bi-catch' dying needlessly by the billions. All so that profit margins are maintained in line with corporate greed. What will future generations say about our stewardship of this most beautiful planet? Why does my heart feel so bad? Because this madness is totally unnecessary and completely unacceptable. - Ken O'Keefe
