Ocean Pollution

Most ocean pollution is a result of polluted runoff water draining into the ocean. Human waste is also a cause of ocean pollution.

Dear Next President, 

 Ocean pollution is getting worse everyday, we must stop it. We need support to help stop the ocean pollution and save hundreds of life in the ocean like the turtles, fish, whales, and sharks. According to scientists, "most ocean pollution begins on land. When large tracts of land are plowed, the exposed soil can erode during rainstorms. Much of this runoff flows to the sea, carrying with it agricultural fertilizers and pesticides. Eighty percent of pollution to the marine environment comes from the land." Cleaning up our oceans must start on the land. We need to help the ocean we love and stop polluting it.
