“Hard to find words for Dangerous Song - Blue; the world should see it/hear it/share it because, as well as immense sadness for what we've got wrong, it inspires renewed energy for our own chosen ways of caring for the earth. With wonder, we realise what a brilliant planet we belong to”.
 
“…...kind of artistic presentation touches people's hearts and I believe it will be far more powerful in persuading people that they need to act now if our beautiful ocean life is going to be preserved."
