Drift through an ocean of information!
Hey hey hey pepper shakers!
This time on Seas of Change, we are informing you on the serious issues that concern everyone; ZE OCEAN!
So ladies and gentlebears (ahah) , grab your lifejackets and LET'S GO FOR A TOUR!
Threats of the ocean:
- Over Fishing
Fish are dying guys! These people taking too many fishy lives when there aren't many in the first place. Can you just imagine? Those little fishies going flob flob..... sigh.
- Commercial Whaling
Yes it still exists. It's appalling how we use these magnificent creatures of the blue for our own purposes! Some whales may never recover from the major loss of numbers from their species.
- Pollution and Climate Change
Use those bins properly guys! Okay, okay, I'll admit, I did once accidentally throw my fish and chips into the recycling... sorry. But no, the rubbish goes from the ocean into fishy mouths and then. they. die. So yea no.
Oil spills actually are SUPER bad for the ocean, not just for the ocean itself, but all the organisms living in it. That's fish, sharks, whales, dolphins, coral, and etc, etc, etc. But also, rubbish affects the animals that rely on the ocean for food too! That includes us, and also birds! LOOK AT THAT LITTLE GUY! THIS JUST SHOWS!
Why the ocean huh?
We depend on the ocean for many things, such as a source of food, water, and oxygen. Because the oceans are the largest ecosystems on Earth, they are the Earth’s largest life support systems.
To survive and prosper, we all need healthy oceans.
Oceans generate half of the oxygen people breathe.
More than 97% of the world’s water resides in oceans.
Oceans also provide a sixth of the animal protein people eat.
They’re the most promising source of new medicines to combat cancer, pain and bacterial diseases. Living oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce the impact of climate change.
The diversity and productivity of the world’s oceans is a vital interest for humankind. Our very survival requires healthy oceans.
Lets all protect them!
