Get involved with the next charity project: https://www.instagram.com/amirzakeri/​

The past 5 months have consisted of traveling with the http://karmagawa.com​ team to 7 countries around the world, documenting the degradation of locals reefs and the critical state of the oceans. We interviewed many marine biologists, locals, and did a lot of diving. There’s one thing when you see things on a screen.. then it’s another when you see it for your own eyes. For this Kansas boy, its been an eye opening experience. It’s so scary what’s happening to our oceans and how fast we’ve ruined it. Out of sight out of mind? Ignorance is bliss? Welp... that lead us here, and it's up to you and me to change this!

Raising awareness and spreading the message is the first step in saving the reefs and our oceans! Share this video will all of your friends, family and followers on social media to help get the word out about this urgent crisis.

Lastly, it's my birthday wish that you not only share this video, but also take action. Stop supporting the companies who make these products that are poisoning our oceans and environment. They only produce if there is demand, so if we don't give them our dollar... they will be forced to change for the better. Let’s make them change!
