⚠️WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT⚠️ Repost from @savethereef In honor of #worldturtleday today please share this sad but ultimately uplifting rescue video of a poor turtle that was trapped in a fishing net. Help us spread awareness about the sad statistics that six of the seven turtle species are now endangered and over 1 million marine animals — dolphins, fish, sharks, turtles and birds — are killed each year due to plastic debris in the ocean because kind people like this aren’t always around to cut these poor animals free from the nets that trap them. There‘s an estimated 150 million metric tons of plastic in oceans around the world…and nearly half of that plastic waste is fishing nets like this! If nothing is done there will soon be more plastic than fish in our oceans and we are determined to stop that from happening before it’s too late, especially considering there’s even more #plasticpollution on land too and spreading awareness about this crisis is the first step to solving this problem. Go watch the official SaveTheReef documentary by clicking the link in our bio, share our documentary and also share this video with your followers and tag people, celebrities and influencers in the comments who need to be made aware of this crisis so they can help get the word out too! It’s we the people who must influence others, corporations and governments to change their behavior and laws so it’s crucial we WORK TOGETHER ASAP to make this a world that’s safe for humans and animals alike! Will you join us in this fight and help us spread awareness? Great video @cfiggener #turtles #ghostnets #endplasticpollution #savetheturtles #karmagawa #savethereef

Unfortunately, 6 of the 7 sea turtle species are classified as threatened or endangered because of human actions.

One of the main threats facing sea turtles is plastic and other marine debris. In fact, over 1 million marine animals — including dolphins, fish, sharks, turtles, and birds — are killed due to plastic debris each year.

There are an estimated 150 million metric tons of plastic in oceans around the world … and nearly half of that plastic waste is fishing nets just like in the video!

If nothing is done, there will soon be more plastic than fish in our oceans. Check out our official “Save the Reef” documentary for more information…

At Karmagawa and Save the Reef, we’re trying to stop plastic from overtaking the environment by spreading awareness of the growing crisis — but we can’t do it alone.

You can help us by following us on Twitter and Instagram for more of our updates — and share the information with your friends and family to let them know. We can accomplish a lot together!

Also, have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own documentaries — and tell people about important subjects like this in your own way?

If so, we recently released a new course that can help you do that … and the great thing is, proceeds go toward helping animals and the environment.  

We joined forces with Amir Zakeri — the filmmaker of the documentary you just watched — to create a videography masterclass to teach you — and you can save 50% on the presale now.

Check out this video to learn more about Amir and how he can help you. Get started today.
