Spending time with fishing communities on the lead-up to #worldenvironmentday has taught me a lot about the sustenance that comes from river and water systems and the lives that depend on them. Approximately 400 million people live along the #Ganges, making it the worlds most populated river basin. These communities are intimately connected to this body of water - living, breathing, praying, loving, surviving, and dying along its banks. The health of humans depends upon the health of our waters. Now more than ever we are being called as a species to look at our relationship to consumerism and waste and our future on this planet. We can all do better, for each other, for other species with which we share this small planet, and for future generations who need us to act now. Be the change. @insidenatgeo #Bangladesh #expeditionplastic #planetorplastic
