We have already destroyed many marine ecosystems
and driven million-year-old species to the
brink of extinction. The things we can do to save the oceans:
1.Eat sustainable seafood.
2.Reduce energy use. Carbon dioxide from burning
fuels is making our oceans more acidic.Corals are lost
on a global scale, as their calcium skeletons are
weakened by the increasing acidity of the water.
3.Use reusable plastic products. Plastic debris
in the ocean degrades marine habitats and contributes
to the deaths of many marine animals.
4.Properly dispose of hazardous materials.
5.Don’t use commercial fertilizer in gardening
or agriculture.If the excess ends up in water,
it results in dead zone.
6.Pick up garbage and litter near beaches.
7.Buy ocean friendly products.Avoid cosmetics
containing shark squalene and jewelry made of
corals or sea turtle shell.
8.Electing the right public official is essential
to good ocean policy.
