A Hope for the Estuary. Working together for the thriving prospects of our local environment, students from both Falmouth and Exeter University collaborated to produce a short documentary focusing on the abundance and distribution of pollution in the Falmouth estuary, to unearth the biological effects this has had on the marine life.
With a growing population and the proliferation of consumerism, the amount of waste that goes into the ocean is increasing exponentially, and we are witnessing the effects this is having not just locally, but on a global scale. This environmental detriment is a byproduct of our avaricious characteristics; we firmly believe it is up to us to change our rapacious nature for the sake of future generations, to give them the opportunity to live alongside the beautiful nature that we so desperately need.
Aldo Leopold: “We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”
