Together we have the Power to Protect the Oceans

Joel Stewart from the Greenpeace website writes:

"In more than three decades at sea, I have had the pleasure to sail across the world’s oceans; I have had the privilege to witness ocean life in a way that few others can; I have experienced the magic and mystery of some of the planet’s biggest, smallest, most beautiful and strangest creatures. From blue whales to the tiniest seahorses and almost everything in between! For me every day is an oceans day.

The majority of my life at sea has been on Greenpeace ships. I was drawn to them after starting out in the commercial world, working Alaskan crab and salmon boats and then on to freighters in the 1980s. Even then I had seen first-hand fish stocks become progressively more depleted and the final straw came in 1989 when I was sailing close by to where the Exxon Valdez spewed its filthy cargo of 11 million gallons of oil into Prince William Sound.

By the end of that year I was sailing with Greenpeace, determined to do what I could to protect our oceans and land."
