In today’s show, we are going to introduce a group of good people who are devoted to protecting the world’s oceans and marine lives. SEA LIFE Trust is a charity registered in England and Wales, United Kingdom, and a Shining World Compassion Award recipient. It champions, “the need for plastic-free oceans and an end to the over-exploitation of marine life through global projects and campaigns,” and runs marine animal sanctuaries.

“We do that in three main ways. We campaign to make that difference for marine life. We’ve campaigned successfully to help create new marine protected areas across the world. We’ve campaigned to reduce plastic pollution as well and encourage people to change their behavior to help reduce that problem.” “We have a seal sanctuary in the UK, which rescues, rehabilitates, and releases sick and injured seal pups every year. And our newest sanctuary is actually a world first. It's the Beluga Whale Sanctuary in Iceland, which will be home to two whales coming from an aquarium or water park in Shanghai in China to live in a bay in Iceland in a more natural environment.” “So the other way we work, every year on June 8, World Oceans Day, we run a global beach clean in partnership with SEA LIFE across the world. We start at sunup or in the morning over in New Zealand and go throughout a 24-hour period across the world with SEA LIFE staff and volunteers going out onto beaches across the world and removing plastic litter from the beaches.”

In January 2019, along with giving the SEA LIFE Trust the Shining World Compassion Award to recognize its noble work, Supreme Master Ching Hai also made a “humble contribution of US$15,000 towards the charity’s dolphin and whale care, with all love and gratitude in God’s mercy. May you and all involved as well as the whales, be protected always by the Providence.”
