Variety has launched its Green Hollywood web feature, and it will be live only through the end of July, so make sure you take a second to go check it out. Ted Danson has teamed up with Variety to feature his organization, Oceana. In the video below, he does a great job explaining exactly what is going on with the oceans & where the problems lie.

Danson explains, “It’s so hard to get – how can anything be wrong with the oceans? They are so vast and beautiful.” And the oceans have their work cut out for them. Danson says that 0.5% of all money that goes to environmental causes winds up in marine work. The other 99.5% of the money goes to land based issues.

In the video, he discusses overfishing, habitat destruction due to bottom trawling, and pollution causing issues with mercury levels in fish. These are all serious issues, and Ted isn’t the only celeb concerned about them.

Last October Sigourney Weaver was in front of the UN to try to put a stop to bottom trawling.

And just last week in a speech in Miami, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. was discussing the same issue that Ted Danson brings up: mercury levels in OUR bodies, and especially those of women in their child-bearing years.

Want to know what your mercury levels are? Waterkeeper & GreenPeace have teamed up to offer you this service. For $25 you can order a mercury testing kit. You send them some samples of your hair, and in a few weeks, they’ll send you back your results.
