"Over many decades, the human race has overfished key species to near extinction, and polluted them with carbon dioxide emissions, toxic chemicals, garbage, and discarded plastics."
People have treated the oceans with disrespect and have caused danger to the marine life living here. We have lead to more bleaching of coral to factories and power plants letting mercury enter the ocean. We have thrown trillions of pieces of plastic in our oceans and overfished certain fish species.
If we don't help the oceans now in the next decades we will be the ones to decide the future of marine wildlife.
