Protecting and conserving natural resources is of utmost importance as a recent United Nations study revealed that more than two-thirds of the world’s fisheries have been overfished.

Baleinabuli says that protecting our fisheries and ensuring their sustainability requires a lot of concerted and relentless effort.
