Taking their kit off, all in the name of saving sea creatures

How far would you go to share a message with the world? If you’re Gillian Anderson (yes, that Gillian Anderson), you’ll get your kit off. In a campaign against deep-sea trawling, Anderson (along with a handful of other well known TV stars and musicians) took off her clothes and draped a large conger eel around her to get the message across for Fishlove.

Campaigners say that deep-sea trawling is wiping out ecosystems ‘the size of Paris’ every couple of days, and they want the EU to ban deep-sea trawling in its waters.

You might remember Fishlove’s other campaign that saw the likes of Jerry Hall and Ben Kingsley pose for photos back in 2011.
