- from Oceans
Oceans provide food, transportation, energy, minerals, warmth, water, and more. If it weren’t for the oceans, we wouldn’t be here today—and neither would the resources we have on land. But people haven’t taken very good care of the oceans in return.
Oil spills kill thousands of animals and plants, and overfishing has made fish populations much smaller.
If you want to help the oceans, try to use less plastic and water. Plastic and other nonrecyclable materials pollute the oceans, and the supply of safe drinking water is limited. If every person uses a little less of these things, the worldwide savings will be enormous.
