Killer Pollution

Marine Debris... See More. Do More!

Our trash kills

Animals drown or strangle everyday from getting tangled in discarded garbage that we've allowed into the waters.

The Problem

The ocean remains one of the most expansive, mysterious and diverse places on Earth. Unfortunately, it is being threatened by pollution from people on land and from natural resources. Marine life is dying, and as a result the whole oceanic ecosystem is threatened simply by various sources of pollution. If we are to preserve ocean and its natural beauty, drastic measures have to be taken to combat this pollution and keep what we hold most dear.
