PETER Diving loves and respects marine life but it is also essential for our business development. Therefore, our team is going to make everything in their hands to help preserve the marine ecosystems. This is the main target of the TRITON Project, face for our brand’s core value: marine conservation. In the same way, PETER Diving supports all organizations and actions that work towards marine conservation.
Yet, beyond our corporate interests there is something more important to all of us: if the marine ecosystems collapse, the terrestrial will follow and with them the human civilization. Dolphins are top predators in the food chain, same as other threatened cetaceans such as whales and orcas or other large fish such as tuna. Every step in the food-chain plays a role by stabilizing the rest of components in the ecosystems. A healthy ecosystem has much resilience – the capability of counteract perturbations such as the destruction caused by a typhoon -, but human activity is weakening the structure of the ecosystems with pollution, overfishing and other destructive practices that lead to a destabilization of the ecosystem structure. All this finally results in a decrease in resilience. This means that any perturbation will be causing more harm to unhealthy ecosystems and will take longer time for them to recover. At the end of the day, planet Earth is the largest ecosystem we know and humans are just a tiny part of them, still the species causing more perturbations if not the only one.
February 13th has been named World Love for Dolphins Day by conservation society Sea Shepherd. This NGO together with hundreds of supporters and lovers of dolphins have launched a global action with the aim of rising awareness and bring these concerns to the Japanese embassies in cities around the planet simultaneously, in the World Love for Dolphins Day. Please watch the following documentary to know more about the real problem brought by the dolphin industry.
