Check out the "The Dangers Beneath" exhibit on Nov 15-17 at the Glorietta 5

Each year, fishermen find millions of bottle caps, plastic caps, cigarette butts and assorted plastics within the stomachs of marine animals. But sea creatures are not the only ones who derive life from these waters – people also depend on marine resources for their health, food and protection. Over 450 million people worldwide live within 60 kilometers of coral reefs and derive food and income from the sea. Forty million Filipinos depend on seafood as a primary source of protein.

From November 15 to 17, take a closer look at some of the trash collected in Philippine seas in an art installation encased in a large aquarium at the Glorietta 5 Activity Center in Makati. The art installation, a shark, has been created from everyday human garbage. This exhibit dubbed ‘The Dangers Beneath’ aims to generate awareness to the public and the consumers that the biggest threat to our marine species is actually created with our own hands.

Everything you discard contributes to environmental pollution. Irresponsible disposal also releases harmful toxins into our oceans, causing serious harm to all marine life forms. With your staunch support, you will enable WWF to generate more awareness about these threats and help them engage corporations and individuals like you to shift to a more sustainable lifestyle. In the end, saving the planet is a matter of choice. Join WWF and Leo Burnett Manila in this crusade - visit ‘The Dangers Beneath’ and drop by the WWF booth to know more on how you can help.
