Ocean Pollution

Ocean of Trash

Take Away the Trash

The world's oceans are filling with bottles, wrappers and other flotsam. It is harming our oceans and sea creatures.From everyday litter like plastic bags, food wrappers and drink bottles, to car batteries, kitchen appliances, enormous fishing nets and industrial waste - the trash accumulating in the ocean is turning our beautiful reefs, lagoons and sea-grass meadows into rubbish dumps. It continues to make its way to the most remote ocean places and can remain for generations. Much of our waste products do not biodegrade and many plastics, for example, break down into smaller fragments posing danger to marine life and human health.

Endangered Sea creatures

Every year tens of thousands of marine animals and seabirds die from eating or getting tangled in marine debris - our waste in the ocean.The rubbish you remove makes the ocean safer for marine life and the information you report can help convince individuals, governments and businesses to act against marine debris. sea turtles are being killed from plastic bags mistaking from jellyfish.Over one million seabirds are killed by ocean pollution each year. Three hundred thousand dolphins and porpoises die each year as a result of becoming entangled in discarded fishing nets, among other items. One hundred thousand sea mammals are killed in the ocean by pollution each year
