Seas are very important for humanity and the whole world. They have billions of creatures in it like fish, sea plants and mammals. We know that some seas are polluted because of people.The biggest reasons are industry churn, incorrect hunting, gasoline released from ships and climate change... However many people throw many things into the sea, such as cigarettes, paper, trash etc. without thinking about the consequences.
Did you know how much time it takes to vanish churn and rubbish at sea?
A piece of paper in the sea disappears in 2 weeks.
A rope in the sea disappears in 1 year.
A can in the sea disappears in 100 year.
A plastic can in the sea disappears in 450 year.
A glass bottle in the sea disappears in 1 million year.
Issues To Protect The Sea
Before applying any activity in the sea, we must have a good education. Without a good education seas will get dirtier then now and people may cause the death of sea animals and plants.
Less Waste And More Recycling:
Instead of throwing our waste in the sea we can use the trash cans and dumpsters. Also we must recycle some things instead of throwing them away.
Controlling Ships And Their Loads:
Ships must be very careful with their loads while crusing. If a ship with chemical load crashes, then all the chemical loads that are on the ship will spill into the sea. The sea will be polluted and the sea animals will die. Ships also realease all their dirty load in the sea.
Aware Of Hunting Rules:
There are lots of animals in the sea that are on their way to extinction. To prevent that some areas have a rule of no hunting. But unfortunately people don't take this rule seriously. That's the biggest reason why some animals are on their way to extinction.
Contrubute Civil Society Movement
People should become a member of civil society movement in their country. This way they can work together to protect marine life. If they contrubute their work to the education minister, than the children can be aware of it.
These are two samples as civil society movement.
