Life in the oceans is at “imminent risk of the worst spate of extinctions in millions of years due to threats such as climate change and over-fishing.” It goes on to say, “We now face losing marine species and entire marine ecosystems, such as coral reefs, within a single generation.”
Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charter Consultants and 1-800 Yacht Charters, feels that everyone involved in the private yacht rental industry needs to take warning.
“Whether you are a yacht rental agent, the owner of a mega yacht charter vessel, or the crew onboard a superyacht, you have a stake in what is happening to our oceans, “ says Sheeder.
“Part of what appeals to people who rent a private yacht is the chance to interact with nature on a personal level – to swim among the creatures of the sea and to witness the rainbow of colors of a living coral reef. When you see a report like this, you realize just how at-risk our reefs really are.”
