We wonder why our marine animals are now more fastly dying off, but we do not take in considering our actions. This world is made up of 7 billion of people with more than half owning cars. We are slowly fading away our marine animals. We become unaware of the affects we create in our ocean. We don’t take in consideration that the great grandchildren, the great grandchildren’s children cannot see the beautiful creations we once saw when we were all children. The views at the beach where we’d look beyond measures down the ocean to the sunset and seeing the dolphins will not be guaranteed to these future children. We have to make an end to the marine pollution before it’s too late. Are we the cause of all the marine deaths and the 70% of polluted water that covers our earth?
Children look beyond the sea to their dreams, dreaming of seeing dolphins, whales diving into the waters living how a marine animal should. If humans do not stop the affect we cause to animals it may too late to save our wildlife. “Much water pollution starts out as air pollution and slowly creeps into our seas, and creates our marine pollution,” says the WWF – Marine Problems. We need to be the change we want to sea. Our marine wildlife is part of something greater than us. They are part of a food chain that is beyond measures. Millions of motor vehicles engines drops small amount of oil each minute onto roads. Which will make its way to our seas. If we do not take matters into our own hands it will be too late.
Does marine pollution end up costing us? Yes, National Geographic has found that “common man made pollutants that reach the ocean (that included, pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, detergent, oil, sewage, plastics, and other solids) are being consumed by our marine animals and the organism that live beyond the surface of our seas.’’ This ends up costing us because we as human beings eat the fish which ends up costing us in the long run because of the fact it affects us. Our bodies were not made to consume man made artificial chemicals. The Environmental Protection Agency of the United States that “mercury is found in fish which cause methyl mercury affects. For fetuses, infants, and children, the primary health effect of methyl mercury is impaired neurological development. Methyl mercury exposure in the womb, which can result from a mother's consumption of fish and shellfish that contain methyl mercury, can adversely affect a baby's growing brain and nervous system. Impacts on cognitive thinking, memory, attention, language, and fine motor and visual spatial skills have been seen in children exposed to methyl mercury in the womb.” This problem we are facing in the 21st century isn’t just having a negative effect on our marine wildlife it is having a huge effect on our future. Which is the children of the world.
