Ocean conservation was first brought to light in my online class. We had to pick a social change topic to research and create awareness. Ocean conservation was my topic of choice because I knew some major issues regarding this concern. Now that I have a greater understanding of this topic, I am even more passionate about making a difference. People do not understand how big of an impact we make on our oceans and how they are crucial to our life on earth. The oceans filters our air, regulates our climate, aids our economic purposes regarding food and trade, and provides a space for animal life which we benefit off of in medicine, and food consumption. We need and use our oceans for much more purposes than people really understand. I never realized how much we utilize our oceans until I carried out my extensive research. This is a non-renewable beauty of our world that we need to preserve. Plastic in the oceans, by-catching fish, burning fossil fuels, and the use of fertilizers are a few ways we are contributing to the destruction of our oceans. If we could eliminate plastic straws, plastic bags, plastic cups and bottles, it would be a small but attainable step in this journey to conserve our oceans, and protect the organisms living in it. Finding alternatives to daily products we use today is an achievable step that everyone can do. This will help to save animal life and diversity in this beautiful oasis. Preservation and action is key in the conservation of our oceans!
