Limestone Water Pollution A serious problem What water pollution means... The causes of water pollution Types of Water Pollution Ways you can prevent Water Pollution! By Lisa, Alisha and Robert Exxon Valdez Spill The Great Pacific Garbage Patch Rio de janeiro sewage rupture Ganges River in India Acidic Water
Bioaccumalation of Mercury
Disruption of the food chain
Algae blooms
Death by Plastic
Loss of Habitat "Marine pollution is a big issue. There is this idea that oceans have unlimited inertia, but nano-particles of plastic getting into marine animals and the food chain are affecting fish fertility rates, and this affects food security and coastal populations. Pollution is having a huge impact on the oceans, and is urgent and needs to be dealt with."
