Tides and the Waterfront is an environmental blog about coastal and oceanic issues. With the increasing human global population, our impact on the environment, particularly the ocean, is growing. This added pressure on oceanic and coastal ecosystems not only threatens the vitality and survival of hundreds of animal species but also our own future. Unsustainable fishing and living practices are polluting and depleting our ocean life faster than it can renew itself. We seek to provide information for the average world citizen to arm them with the facts and hopefully inspire change. Saving the world (and our oceans) will require more than just one hero. Let us each do our part to make this world a better place, together.
