News Icon 08/12/2014

These are the words that I said as I looked around the devastating effects of the fishmeal industry in Peru.

I visited a bay that is a ‘dead zone’ – caused by the fishmeal industry and the water pollution it is causing. There has been massive reductions in once common seabirds species like the Peruvian booby. Local children have blister-like sores caused by the extreme pollution.

Children with skin blisters; wildlife driven to the brink. Watch my latest short video, an overview of my trip to Peru showing how the fishmeal industry is destroying entire eco-systems and polluting local communities- simply to produce cheap feed for factory farms.
