Dear future generations,

At the rate at which we are pollution our oceans and if we do not act now, we could lose seafood by 2048. That seems like a long time away but in reality, that time will go by extremely fast. The loss of ocean biodiversity is accelerating, and 29 percent of the seafood species humans consume have already crashed. If the long-term trend continues, in 30 years there will be little or no seafood available for sustainable harvest. This is going to kill the population of our fish rapidly and we need to act now. I hope when you read this, we have done something to fix this problem and more problems with polluting our oceans. Our ocean makes up our planet and we need to protect it.

Dear Amara and Uma,
