Vegan for the Ocean

I have been enjoying mainly the vegan lifestyle for the past 30 years of my life and I am certain, that switching from eating animals to eating plants has been the best one choice I have courageously made in my early teenage years. My effort to make tasty, healthy, easy vegan food has always been motivated by how to get the best nourishment for my body & soul in the most efficient and environmentally responsible ethical way. Observing all the scientific evidence we have today, I have no doubts, that if you really care for social justice and equity, if you care for both your own health and the health of our beautiful Planet, then you Naturally GO VEGAN.  Choosing mainly plant-rich food is the best and the easiest first step you can make RIGHT NOW and EVERY SINGLE DAY. Both as individuals and as a society at large! Reflecting on my own vegan journey, I dare to say that if you like to live your life to the fullest if you strive to answer the questions of "Who am I?" and "What is my role in the World?" if you like to experience and know your most intimate connection to all creation and Nature around you, avoiding or reducing animal food on your plate will take you safely the long way. Having grown up in the beautiful countryside of the Giant Mountains National park in the Czech Republic I have been blessed to live close to Nature. And I have seen its deterioration too well! Witnessing large-scale Ecosystem degradation, deforestation, pollution, and loss of biodiversity on land and the sea I started volunteering for Nature back in the '90s. I believe that if we humans are wise Stewards of the Earth, we must make protecting the environment and its biodiversity our golden standard. Therefore while living in Amsterdam now, I have joined the Sea Shepherd volunteers some two years ago and I have been with passion and commitment fundraising for and promoting the Sea Shepherd ever since. As an "insider" I can say it's a great family of sincere, committed, warm-hearted people, who understand that protecting Life in the Sea equals protecting our Future on this Planet. I hope that you will hear the urgent call for help and that you will JOIN, SUPPORT & SHARE this fundraiser with your family and friends. My sincere THANK YOU!
