During the kick-off of Latino Conservation Week, Oasis Youth Ministry, Victorious Men, and Victorious Kids will be enjoying a day of Fishing in the port of Los Angeles, CA. We will be docking off from Newport Landing and heading out towards safe fishing grounds near the Catalina Islands.
It's a day were kids, youth and adults will learn from wildlife experts how overfishing can lead to devastating effects to our economy as well as lands. They will see the majesty of our planet from a fishermen's eyes. They will learn how fisherman are advocates for climate change in the coast of California are supporting the 30/30 initiative.
In California, the ocean supports a diversity of marine organisms and a vibrant fishing economy. However, increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are leading to a warmer ocean and more extreme climate variations. This has implications for the location and abundance of fish and invertebrates as well as the people who depend on these species for their livelihoods and wellbeing.
