Petra Nemcova Goes Vegan For The Fish

Posted Tuesday July 31, 2007 4:08 PM GMT

Supermodel tsunami survivor Petra Nemcova has spent each day since the December 2004 tragedy trying to make the world a better place. She even launched the Happy Hearts Fund, which aims at "helping children who've suffered loss or hardship as a result of natural, economic or health-related disasters."

With her charitable efforts not being enough, Nemcova has now become a vegan after learning about the planet's rapidly depleting fish stocks. The Czech Republic born model gave up meat and dairy in February because "she wants to set an example and help save ocean life."

Recently spotted helping out at an OCRF Benefit, Petra said: "I became quite green - I have a very strong connection to nature. I read that if we fish the way we fish, in 2048 there will be no more fish left, which is pretty soon. So it's a statement."

While we aren't sure where Petra's facts are coming from, we do applaud her efforts.
