We are the senior high school students from Taiwan. Cooperating with the school’s research curriculum, we find that the ocean has been seriously polluted due to the rapid development of industry. Marine life is under great threat. Because of various human’s activities, the ocean is seriously acidified. According to the data, from 1751 to 1994, the concentration of hydrogen ions in the ocean had increased by 30%. For the reason, we hope that through this initiative, we can call on everyone to contribute to the ocean.

Ocean acidification is the phenomenon that the the ocean absorbs carbon dioxide emitted by humans for various developments, which causes the PH of the ocean to decrease. The ocean is weakly alkaline, but because of our massive destruction, its PH value has decreased. If we do not face the seriousness of this problem, the impact of ocean acidification will lead to the destruction of the food chain. Finally. Humans will be counterattacked by nature.

June 8th is World Oceans Day. Many countries around the world signed Kyoto Protocol and Monaco Declaration. Both of them can direct or indirect control of carbon emission. However, we are as common people, what contribution can we make to the ocean? We hope to cooperate with this special day to invite you to join us in conserving the ocean. We can start from the little things in daily life. Turning off the power after using, taking the public transportation more. Contributing to our precious marine resources. Maybe the strength off you and me are really small. As long as we are willing to work hard, maybe one day we will be able to see the healthy appearance of the ocean again.
