WATCH: Apo Reef’s Fish Are Disappearing Due to Climate Change

In collaboration with National Geographic, actor Joshua Jackson (you may remember him from Dawson’s Creek) headed to the famed Apo Reef to witness firsthand the devastating effects of climate change on the fish that once thrived in the area, and on the fishermen’s lives that highly depend on it.

In the video, a fisherman and his son are seen struggling with their everyday lives as their daily catch trickles down to zero.
