How disposable consumerism destroys marine life and threatens our health – a call to action

Craig Leeson teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers to investigate the unimaginable invasion of plastic waste in our world’s oceans. Exploring the fragile state of the seas in twenty locations over four years, this first-hand account uncovers alarming truths. The result is chilling, with an underlying message of optimism. If human behaviours change, we can save the oceans, and ourselves.
