'The Blue Planet' is an exclusive globe created for the campaign Earth One.
The Blue Planet is based on one of Tom Fitch's recent paintings, 'The Great Barrier Reef'. The Earth is called the Blue Planet because roughly 70% of the surface is covered by water. Fitch has responded to the term 'One Earth' by magnifying the importance of water and its ecosystems. Coral Reefs are in danger of dying off. The planet has already lost 50% of its Reefs in the past 30 years. The Blue Planet globe painting shows a small snapshot of some of the biodiversity that rely on Coral Reefs. Fitch has painted sharks, jellyfish, turtles, clown fish and other marine wildlife using very bright and intense colours to catch the viewers' attention and to raise awareness of a beautiful world that is under threat.
Our planet is the most precious natural resource that we humans rely on for our very survival. Climate change is a very real challenge, and with rising sea temperatures, plastic pollution, air pollution, deforestation, and animal species dying out, NOW is our last chance to act to save the planet that we call home before the effects of human activity cannot be reversed.
