Such as sea turtle, whales, and other marine mammals, and more than one million seabirds die each year from ocean pollution. Plastic bags are petroleum based material and is not biodegradable. While floating on the water it looks like sea organisms (such as jellyfish), Sea turtles often mistake plastics and other garbage as food and eat them. This mistake can causes fatal blockages in their digestive system and lead to
As more and more water is becoming contaminated with pesticides and chemicals, it is becoming even harder to stop the corals from dying. Thankfully, there are solutions that can help restore the Great Barrier Reef. Just as there are several causes to the habitat change of the Great Barrier Reef, there are ways to put the progressing depletion to a stop. One effective solution is to cut farm pollution, or at least keep it from the oceans. Using organic fertilizers instead of harmful chemicals can keep the coral’s water fresh from the dangerous pesticides.
This shows that an environmental threat that blue crabs face is pollution because if about 1 million animals are dying each year because of pollution, we have a serious problem. Furthermore, another ecological hazard that this incredible animal faces is fishing and it’s equipment. According to the text, “Modern fishing methods have created some serious problems for the ocean. The populations of almost all fish species that we eat have shrunken,”(Dignan 14). This proves that another environmental threat that blue crabs faces are fishing because they may not be a type of fish, but, like most crabs, they are fished, caught and sold.
Much of the marine life is getting damaged and is in danger of dying. The big question is how we can prevent and put a stop to this? While many solutions are being put into play to help support this problem, the best solution is the “Boyan Slat” project, an invention that develops advanced technology to help decrease the ocean pollution. Even though some authorities
Fourteen billion pounds of garbage is dumped into the ocean every year. And most of that is plastic or harmful chemicals. Over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals are killed by pollution every year. People who live in places with high levels of air pollutants have a 20% higher risk of death from lung cancer than people who live in less polluted areas, As stated by DoSomething.org. We have to find a way to polluting the waters.
When we sport fish we are killing fish for fun. One big problem today is commercial fishing, commercial fishing is taking a lot of fish away today the problem with it is that the people that live in a year round fishing area loose a lot of fish with that the people can’t fish anymore or have to sell and leave. To stop this we must reduce the amount of how many people fish and Make laws more intense which that will take me to the last area where I will talk about making fishing laws more stronger. But the last thing is that some of the fish in that area can go extinct. The last thing is that we need to make laws more strict to help from people trying to cheat the fishing way.
Plastic In my opinion, there is no reason to keep wasting money on plastic, that is just going to end up causing risk to all living things on this planet. Did you know that about 8.3 billion plastic particles are made each year and about 6.3 million just end up as plastic waste in landfills? But, what happens when the landfills are full? Plastic pollutes the ocean and environment in many ways. Plastic usage is an extremely poor choice for everything and it should be banned because it pollutes air quality for the planet, puts marine animals in danger, and even puts our own lives at risk!
Millions of polyps doing this over time create huge reefs. Polyps are among the ocean 's most fragile creatures. The slightest touch by an object--like an anchor--can hurt or kill them. Also, the animals grow only in clean tropical water that 's between 68°F and 82°F. A change in the water 's temperature or chemical makeup can be deadly for polyps.
15 million gallons is large quantity of oil to be put in the ocean every year, this number does not include pollution from drains and runoff, and many other contributors. If offshore drilling continues the oceans will only become more dangerous polluted and have a negative effect on marine life. Frost states, “‘There were some immediate impacts to the animals of the gulf of mexico that could be seen with the naked eye! Pelicans black with oil. Fish belly-up in brown sludge, smothered turtles washed up on beaches.
Marine mammals such as seals are being found entangled in plastic fishnets and several drown. It is tragic that the oceans have large amounts of plastic contamination which is causing problems with marine life and beach birds. It is discovered that these animals are mistaking small plastic debris for food, Susan Casey in her article, “Our Oceans Are Turning Into Plastic…Are You?”
This includes 86% sea turtles species and 44% of all sea birds species. Plastic pollution has impacted them with fatalities such as ingestion, starvation, suffocation and infections. Water bottle company 's shouldn 't take the blame for the pollution. I think that the people who litter and throw away their rubbish in the oceans are responsible for it. People who litter are harming the ocean and making it dirty that has cause a lot of animals to die.
Many people claim that desalination is an energy wasteful process, is extremely expensive and can damage the environment, particularly marine life. When the seawater is sucked in to be desalinated, plankton and fish and even birds can be sucked in and killed as well. When the salt water is extracted from the fresh water, the salty ‘brine’ is put back into the ocean where it sinks to the bottom because it is denser than normal sea water. This could have unknown consequences but because the process is so knew it is hard to tell how detrimental they will be. It is issues like that which have stopped a plant like this being built in the past.
Pollution, one of the common ways that land and water affect each other in a watershed. Without the conservation programs, watersheds would be infected with pollution. Our water supply watersheds wouldn’t be purified/clean. Watersheds help recharge our water supply, helps protect oceans, and provides good habitat for Hawaii. The great benefits of watersheds are very protecting for the Hawaiian Islands and around the world.
As humans expand they are producing more waste and need a place for it to go. In some countries, people just pump the waste into the water, as a result it is harming the manatees. The waste that humans are pumping into the ocean is causing toxic algae which the manatee eats and it makes the sick or could kill them. The waste from humans hurts the manatee also by
My opinion on the video is that we need to find ways to prevent the wide spread of acidity that is increasing over time across our earth. The acidity doesn 't just effect the fish but it effects human beings. Just as the acidity hurt Mark and Sues business, it could hurt other business that are also involved with the oceanic wild
