We must protect our #oceans . By purchasing a limited-edition @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn oceans t-shirt or sweatshirt you will directly support our partners like Global Fishing Watch (pictured here) and their ocean conservation efforts. Click link in bio. Global Fishing Watch is an online platform that launched in September 2016 by Google in partnership with @Oceana and Skytruth, to provide the world’s first global view of commercial fishing activities. At any moment, 200,000 vessels are publicizing their locations via the Automatic Identification System (AIS). Using satellite technology and GPS tracking, Global Fishing Watch is shining a light on illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing. These activities deplete fish populations, hurt the global economy, and threaten the lives of many fishermen. In an unprecedented move, the countries of Indonesia and Peru have agreed to share their data, setting an example of transparency and collaboration for our world’s oceans.
