Seaspiracy (2021) – Review

This new, thought-provoking documentary highlights the damage that humans are really doing to our very own ocean life, while also uncovering an alarming amount of corruption that is happening on a global scale. Seaspiracy is available to stream on Netflix, but it has to be said that there are a number of extremely raw and upsetting scenes of animal cruelty included. If you’re able to get past that, however, I’d encourage anybody to watch this at least once in their lifetime.
