"Song for the Ocean" resonates as marine contamination in Japan mounts

As the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident continues out of control, so does the massive and mounting problem of the radioactive contamination of the ocean from the leaks that continue to flow from Japan's coastal reactor site. Now, the reactor site is awash in more than 100,000 tons of radioactive water  as a result of the ongoing desperate measures to cool the radioactive shambles of what was a six unit nuclear power plant site. This nuclear accident which could persist for years is literally flushing its radioactive contents into the Pacific Ocean.

Take a moment, and reflect with us on the implications for our marine environment and its species who are being heavily impacted by this devastating and unprecedented event.

We invite you to watch and listen to this enlightening and moving Song for the Ocean by Kristin Hoffmann, with videography by Colin Garland. Written and recorded before the Fukushima and BP disasters, it resonates now more than ever.
