Saving Mother Ocean by Steve Andrews - book review by Heather
The official description on the publishers website is-
We’ve all seen the news of dead and dying whales, and the alarming amounts of plastic pollution washing up on beaches or floating on the tides. The oceans are in very great danger for many reasons, and it is not just plastic waste, which is bad enough. Overfishing, acidification, coral bleaching, nuclear waste, seabed mining, military testing, and climate change, are taking a very heavy toll on marine creatures of all types, from tiny plankton to the massive whales. The eponymous Dead Zones are aptly named. Many marine creatures are in danger of extinction. Life on this planet depends on healthy oceans. We depend on healthy oceans. This book takes a look at the threats to marine life, and what is being done to save the seas. It is a call to action to save Mother Ocean. The author explains how he became personally motivated to do what he could. As a singer and songwriter he wrote songs and came up with the idea for Ocean Aid concerts. Now he has written the book you are holding. He hopes to inspire you to think about what you can do. We all need to help save the seas.
I found this book, from the start; the author describes his personal findings, as well as directing the reader to discover more. From plastic to lifestyle choices, the book gives the basic information, with references and ocean related organization's to be investigated.
The second half, where the author provides a selection of meditations, which are presented as statements for the reader to take from as a base to meditate from, I found particularly valuable.
Helpful book to guide where we can make person changes necessary to save our mother ocean and mother earth.
