Marine pollution ppt

  1. 1. MARINE POLLUTION EMILY EVERSON
  2. 2. A HIGHER SPECIES IS WHAT HUMAN’S HAVE EVOLVED INTO BUT WHY IS IT THAT, AS EVOLVED AS A SPECIES WE ARE, WE CHOOSE TO DESTROY OUR ECOSYSTEMS AND MURDER/INJURE INNOCENT LIVES? YOU’RE PROBABLY THINKING, “I’VE NEVER KILLED ANY ONE OR DESTROYED AN ENTIRE ENVIRONMENT, THAT IS TERRIBLE!” LET’S REPHRASE
  3. 3. IT IS CLEAR TO SEE THAT POLLUTION HAS NEGATIVELY IMPACTED TODAY’S ECOSYSTEM AND THOSE INHABITING IT HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU GONE TO THE BEACH AND SEEN TRASH FLOATING IN THE WATER, PEOPLE TOSSING CIGARETTES INTO THE OCEAN, OR DIRTY/CLOUDY WATER? MORE IMPORTANTLY, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU OR YOUR FRIENDS DONE THE SAME THING? THIS IS NOT TO BLAME ANYONE, BUT SIMPLY INFORM. FOR WE HAVE ALL BEEN BLINDED AT A TIME OR ANOTHER BECAUSE WE DID NOT KNOW THE EFFECTS…
  4. 4. NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF MARINE POLLUTION CONSIST OF BUT NOT LIMITED TO..• EFFECTS OF TOXIC WASTE • DISRUPTION TO THE CYCLE OF CORAL REEFS • DEPLETED OXYGEN CONTENT IN THE WATER • FAILURE IN THE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM OF ANIMALS • EFFECTS IN THE FOOD CHAIN • EFFECTS ON HUMANS
  5. 5. POSITIVE EFFECTS OF POLLUTION
  6. 6. WONDERING HOW IT MIGHT FEEL TO LIVE IN CONSTANT FORCEFUL POLLUTION? IMAGINE TRYING TO EAT A NICE MEAL WITH PLASTIC BOTTLES SURROUNDING YOU
  7. 7. AFTER VIEWING THE PREVIOUS SLIDE, CONSIDER THIS: • WHEN SEA ANIMALS ARE INGESTING TOXINS, AND HUMAN’S THEN EAT THOSE ANIMALS, HUMANS ARE INGESTING THOSE TOXINS AS WELL. • ALTHOUGH SEA POLLUTION OCCURS IN THE AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM, IT AFFECTS THOSE ON LAND AS WELL AS SEA.
  8. 8. ENOUGH NEGATIVITY! • AFTER SYMPATHIZING AND GATHERING INFORMATION ABOUT THE HARSH REALITY OF POLLUTION, IT’S TIME TO BRAIN STORM! • QUESTION TIME! WHAT ARE WAYS WE, AS A SPECIES, CAN PREVENT AND CUT DOWN MARINE POLLUTION?
  9. 9. SUGGESTIONS OF CHANGE! • COLLEGE STUDENTS AND VOLUNTEERS CAN CREATE CLEAN UP CREWS • HOLD INFORMATIONAL EVENTS/SEMINARS • RESEARCH BIODEGRADABLE MATERIALS • SPREAD AWARENESS!!!! • CREATE FUNDRAISERS TO FUND RESEARCH AND BRAINSTORM
  10. 10. TIME FOR CHANGE, TIME FOR ACTION! • IN SUMMATION, THE NEXT TIME YOU THINK IT’S JUST ONE BOTTLE, REMEMBER THAT TO AN ENVIRONMENT OR AN ANIMAL, IT COULD BE A LIFE. • STOP MARINE POLLUTION, THINK ABOUT THE EFFECTS! • TAKE ACTION NOW AND RESEARCH, OR TAKE ACTION WHEN IT’S TOO LATE.. THE CHOICE IS OURS.
