Can You Help?
Our oceans make life on earth possible. We must do everything that we can to keep them clean.
Our oceans give us food. They are home to most of earth's creatures.
Our oceans help control earth's weather. They provide rain. They provide half of our earth's oxygen. They also help to control our temperatures.
The oceans also are highways to move many of the world’s goods. More than 90% of the world’s trade comes from ships.
It doesn't matter if you live near the ocean or not, you can help to keep our oceans clean. To learn more about what you can do to save our oceans, check out these sites:
