Pollution in the Chesapeake?
Why, when, and how to stop it
When it happens
Pollution can happen in many different ways. One way is that people can be careless. People like you and I can make more thrash than the city can hold, causing it to run into the Chesapeake Bay. It could also happen by accident, even if you do take the trash out, it CAN end up in the bay.
How to stop it
You can help stop pollution in the Chesapeake Bay too! By just recycling, putting trash where its suppose to be, and picking up trash when you see it, no matter where you are. I hope you will help with saving the Chesapeake bay now that you know all the harm we are doing to it.
This is one way trash gets into bay.
Sometimes it isn't our fault trash ends up in the bay.
This is what kids in India are put threw. Does this look nice?
What it affects
The pollution in the Chesapeake can tear apart the water ecosystem, including the things that rely on the water. The pollution could effect the wildlife in many different ways(see below pictures). The ways could vary from suffocating fish to them getting trapped. Finally, there's us, the people. We rely on the water. The fish have to deal with us and so do we. The fish have to deal with our pollution and its not even their fault, but if all the people work together, we would have enough drinking water for everyone around the bay. Think about it, if we had companies to purify the dirty water and people didn't pollute it would be so clean and homeless people could work at the purifying plant and make money. That eliminates two problems! But that's only if everyone bands together.
Imagine how many fish you could save by just throwing trash where its suppost to be
Fish don't need to drink soda!
