News Crew - How can you help care for the ocean?
Hey Jammers! As you all know, the ocean does not only have water, but it also has many inhabitants such as dolphins, sharks, octopi and fish of all sorts. There is at least 226,408 marine species! That may be a lot, but they are decreasing mainly due to pollution, so I am here to tell you jammers how YOU can help care for the ocean! One easy way to help care for the ocean is by recyling any plastic items. You may not know this, but plastic never actually decomposes, so that means it is stuck on this world forever. Plastic can harm creatures in the ocean by trapping them and harming them when they accidentally eat it. Speaking about plastic, another way to keep plastic out of the ocean is by bringing your own reusable bag to grocery stores. While some stores do not put the food in plastic bags, some do. Bringing a reuseable bag may be a small thing, but it really makes a difference! If you are planning to kayak or go on a boat, you can care for the ocean by not throwing any trash over board, even if it's not plastic. Things like metal, paper, glass, and cans can also possibly harm sea creatures. Rather than throwing trash into the ocean, you can bring a garbage can with you and dispose of the garbage once you get back to land. Another way to care for the ocean is raising awareness about it. There are many organizations that are tring to protect the ocean. If you raise awareness about it, then more people will become concerned about the ocean and how pollution affects the creatures that inhabit it. The beach also closely connects to the ocean, so cleaning this up helps too! You can easily pick up after yourself while having a fun time at the beach. While leaving your trash on the sand may seem okay, it's not. This may hurt animals that take refuge on the beach and it can easily end up in the ocean due to strong winds and high currents that send it into the ocean. Keep in mind, that the ocean has about 97% of our water source. But fear not, because many scientists and organizations are working to protect it and clean out the pollution that lurks within it. We can also help keep it safe too! Just the smallest actions can help care for the ocean, from cleaning up after yourself, to supporting organizations that want to protect it. That's all I have to say, and I hope you enjoy your summer and spend some time at the beach!
