by Isabell McNeer

NEGITIVE WAYS WE AFFECT WATERSHEDS

  1. oil spills like the Exon Valdez oil spill in 1989
  2. over fishing

  3. fertilizers

  4. anchors

  5. draining sewage

How Does It Effect Our Ecosystem

This effects our ecosystem by making it harder to breath because there is not a lot of producers to produce oxygen for us to breath. Also if we run out of fish, there will be a lot of people who are not goanna get there main food source. If we ruin all the coral reefs, we will kill almost every species of fish, shrimp, and a lot more probably the whole ocean population or at least a good portion of it.
