THE THREAT OF MARINE LIFE ENDANGERMENT
How many have seen Finding Nemo?!
Oceans are important because they play an imperative role in maintaining biodiversity and regulating weather climate.
Every ocean in the world contains threatened marine life (World Animal Foundation, Inc., 2013).
Our marine life is becoming endangered due to common humans acts like trapping sea creatures in fishing gear, hitting sea creatures with boats, amusement park needs, and constructing coastal developments in these sea creatures' natural habitats (MarineBio, 2013)
and many other marine species!
This problem goes unnoticed by many because it takes place under the 70% of the Earth that is covered by water.
In one instance...
(World Animal Foundation, Inc., 2013)
We need to act now if we hope to avoid marine life extinction within our lifetime!
Volunteer at and/or donate to the
World Animal Foundation!
"Extinction is forever.
By donating and/or volunteering, audience members will be directly helping to better educate the public on this matter.
You can also "Adopt an Animal"
Time is running out."
We must act now.
Barriers? No problem!
Broke college student?
Busy college student?
That's fine! Marine life endangerment is caused in large part by the everyday actions of humans. Adjust your lifestyles!
Or simply educate people about the problem.
People can't help if they don't know...
We need to protect our marine life because extinction of these major species would throw off the ocean's ecosystem, which we are dependent on for our earth's regulation and bionetwork.
The World Animal Foundation is doing everything it can, but it needs
active people to positively impact our marine life and help save our ocean friends.
Please donate to and/or volunteer at the World Animal Foundation.
Help keep our oceans beautiful and keep our animals alive.
