The ocean makes up 72% of our planet and provides important services that impact each and every one of us. Not only does the ocean regulate earth temperature through currents, it also sequesters (holds onto) carbon in the atmosphere and produces half of the oxygen we breathe. So, take a deep breath…. Now take another and thank the oceans.
Marine debris is incredibly dangerous to ocean wildlife, and plastic pollution is overwhelming our oceans. It is projected that by 2050, there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. Once in the ocean, plastic never goes away. From there, plastic can entangle, wrap, or be consumed by ocean wildlife. At a minimum, plastic can prevent an animal from growing properly, and in the worst cases, the sea creature will die by entanglement or consumption of plastic.
