Going beyod the hour: celebrating successful ecological initiatives in the Philippines
MetadataShow full item record
Climate change is drastically changing the condition of the world’s oceans. With rising temperatures brought about by the greenhouse effect, the world’s oceans are becoming more acidic, thus making them more inhospitable to a variety of fish species and other animal life. This poses a grave threat to the livelihood of the world’s fisherfolk who are already reeling from the adverse effects of overfishing in the past few decades. With 85 percent of the fishers in the Philippines being small-scale fishermen, the more they stand to become greatly affected by climate change.
