"The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it" -Robert Swan
Humans are guilty of this brutal murder of hundreds of species of marine life, and we don't realize that we need fish to survive. This piece of art by Natalia Rak shows that even if the fantastical mermaid were real, humans would still hunt them to extinction. It's time to end this madness and I encourage everyone to watch a short animated clip by theblackfish organization called Losing Nemo, here that explains everything.

Take a pledge to stop eating fish
