Save the Bay!

Humans are causing life in the bay to slowly die out

Due to pollution, many marine animals that call the Chesapeake Bay home are beginning to die.

Many problems are beginning to face the Chesapeake Bay, mainly from humans. Things such as urban and suburban runoff, agriculture, vehicle emissions, and agriculture are making excess nutrients for in the Bay, which causes the growth of algae to speed up, which then causes mass chaos for the whole underwater ecosystem. With the excess growth of algae, it blocks the sunlight, which is needed by the underwater bay grasses need to grow. Also, when the algae decompose, they deplete the water of oxygen, which is needed by the aquatic animals to survive.

What we humans need to do is try and find a way in which we can live in harmony with animals, especially in the bay, without harming them.
