Oil spills are one of the most dangerous events for all ecosystems especially the ocean because it kills a lot of fish.

But we can prevent this by cleaning the oil and sinking artificial reefs to bring fish species back.

Chemicals in runoffs

This is a huge problem because it affects the ocean and our water because we will not be able to drink river water.

But the people are putting filters in rivers and ponds to minimize the chemicals that reach our water.

Air pollution

This affects the water because the air pollution blocks carbon dioxide to enter the water and the organisms cannot produce photosynthesis, and us humans not having the 50% of oxygen the ocean generates for us.

But the EPA are helping to reduce air pollution by cleaning the water and using less factories.
