31 April 2010. After all the training, the running, the countless marathons that I had covered, the pounding of so many miles on so many empty roads in the middle of the winter, the date I had been excitedly awaiting for and, to a little degree dreading, finally arrived: The Day I depart for the 25th Marathon des Sables to raise money for Facing Africa.
Fishlove is a series of striking images which is now at the heart of a global movement to protect our seas from destructive fishing practices. The portraits, featuring celebrated individuals with fish, have succeeded in raising significant awareness for campaigns such as OCEAN2012, Deep Sea Coalition, The End of the Line, and Blue Marine Foundation.

But the good news is that it is a catastrophe that can be easily averted. With the right political measures over the next five years, our seas can survive for generations to come. See how you can help.
