Two Minutes on Oceans with Jim Toomey: Nutrient Runoff
Jim Toomey, one of North America's premier syndicated cartoonists and leading ocean advocates, partnered with UNEP to develop "Two Minutes on Oceans with Jim Toomey," a series of six two-minute videos intended to raise awareness on the importance of oceans and the coastal environment. The use of fertilizers in agriculture has increased the productivity of our farms. However, this increase has come with a price. Fertilizers and other chemicals end up in our streams and rivers, and eventually in our oceans. The run-off from these chemicals creates algae blooms that result in dead zones and destroy our corals, fish and mangroves. Watch this 5th video in the UNEP series and learn what you can do to help!
