Changing Oceans

Justin La Doux's avatar Justin La Doux

I have never seen or swam in an ocean, but understand the importance of healthy oceans. The air we breath:70% of the oxygen in the atmosphere is produced by marine plants. The food we eat: fish are being overfished to unstable levels. The beautiful sights we see: are being destroyed by pollution. The relaxing sounds we hear: saved the humpbacks whales from extinction which was a step in the right direction. As big as the oceans are humans create more problems than the oceans can handle. Pollution, dead zones, drilling, dumping, plastic, overfishing, coral bleaching, bycatch, just to name a few. Even though we have created these problems for the earth's oceans it's not to late for change. People have the chance to work together and restore the oceans back to a sustainable ecosystem.
