SEAS IN TROUBLE
Over 90% of the earth's plants and animals - from tiny plankton to the mighty blue whales - live in and depend on the seas and oceans.
More than 2½ billion people in the world depend on fish for at least 20 percent of the protein they consume, and more than 200 million jobs are related to fisheries.
Threats to the sea include:
The world’s fisheries are becoming fully exploited or overfished, but billions of unwanted fish and other animals die needlessly each year.
Rising sea temperatures are causing coral bleaching and inhibiting the ocean’s ability to absorb carbon dioxide. Marine plants produce at least half of the oxygen in the atmosphere and the oceans absorb a third of the carbon dioxide. This regulates the climate helping to prevent the earth from overheating. The oceans are becoming less able to absorb carbon dioxide affecting their ability to moderate our climate.
Chemical pollution can come from agriculture, shipping, oil rigs, tourism and factories. Discarded plastic kills thousands of mammals, birds and fish that become entangled in it or eat it, mistaking it for food.
