Episode 11 | What A Fish Knows | Books To Help Save The Planet

Green Pages

For many of us, a staycation, a holiday to a faraway place or days spent lounging at home are ideal opportunities to lose oneself in a good book. Discovering a great book and getting lost in its pages is the ultimate joy.

From heartfelt climate change stories to uncovering the hidden life of trees, I’m so grateful to be sharing with you a collection of inspiring books to help save the planet.

This week I finished reading: What A Fish Knows: The Inner Lives Of Our Underwater Cousins By Jonathan Balcombe. A myth-busting book packed with insightful scientific research, it is likely to change the way you look at our underwater cousins forever.

Discover in the video above why eating a tuna fish sandwich is no different than eating a wild tiger steak. Join me as I unpack the incredible parallels between the business world and reef-cleaner fish and enjoy a fresh look at these remarkable creatures in all their breathtaking diversity and beauty. 

Despite there being more than 30,000 species of fish – more than all mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians combined, we rarely consider how fish think, feel, and behave. We’ve been pre-conditioned to think of fishes as objects. Not as beings with complex social lives, feelings, and memories.

I don’t think anyone could read this book and not look fish big or small in a completely different light.

If you feel inspired to find out more or order this wonderful book, fantastic 🙂 Here is an easy, quick LINK.

“We hear no screams and see no tears when their mouths are impaled and their bodies pulled from the water… Crying out in pain is as ineffective for a fish in the air as crying out in pain is for us when we are submerged.”

Jonathan Balcombe
