What we learn?
Microbead is very harmful
Can lead to dead of fish or other marine animals
This disrupt the food chain of humans when fish no longer exist.
Sea creatures eat microbeads
This passed down along the marine food chain
Such that, human also eat fish that contains plastic.
Wildlife entanglement, Debris ingestion and Water pollution are effects of marine debris to our environment
Solution : the 3 “R”s [Reduce, Reuse, Recycle] plays a significant role in preventing water pollution
By tree planting, it could purify the air we live in as the air is being filtered by the tree and being returned back to the atmosphere
Trees can create an environment that enhances growth diversity of wildlife habitat.
When soil washes into waterways, it increases the water pollution that can damage the marine life as it doesn’t have any roots.
Deforestation threatens future scientific discoveries of species that could be useful to mankind
Solution : We should buy more products that are made by recycled papers.
