PSA

 There are a lot of kinds of pollution that can infect our water. One reason is plastic getting into the water. Plastic is a big deal because it never goes away. After a while, it disappears.. You think it’s gone but it is really invisible to us, we can't see it because it's microscopic.If the invisible plastic gets on a fish’s food and the fish eat it, it can kill them.
  Something very similar is just trash getting in the water. For two reasons, The trash can choke them and tangle them up, or they could get stuck in it, and all the bacteria of the trash in the water is obviously not very good for the fish, or any other animal in the water.
The last reason, is oil spilling in the water or any toxic chemical related to that. We can all tell that's not a very good thing and it doesn’t belong in the water with all the animals and plants in the water
  The point source of pollution is sewage. It's bad for the animals in the ocean . It clogs up the fish gills and it’s hard for them to swim in and it’s full of gross bacteria. A group of people called The ocean cleanup made something to cleanup the garbage patch. instead of using nets. So they made the garbage patch so they can catch the floating plastic. So the animals won't get stuck in the nets.
  Nonpoint water pollution usually results from land runoff, precipitation, drainage. Pollution is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground. As the runoff moves it picks up and carries the pollutants finally putting them into lakes, rivers , wetlands, and ocean. Pollution is not good at all it is very bad for the animals in the ocean and for us. It’s really sad that this is happening to the earth.    
 The main reason out of all nine choices, oil spills and marine dumping are the ones I chose. I chose marine dumping because of all the trash in the ocean. We don't want the Great Pacific Garbage patch to get bigger and yes that is an actual place sadly. I also chose oil spills because there is so much oil in the ocean.
    Oil spills and marine dumping are very bad because it can harm animals and the plants and the water. The marine dumping could involve plastic and if the animals eat that they will get really sick. Oil spills are also really bad because it’s like poison for the animals if they drink it.
The last reason, is oil spilling in the water or any toxic chemical related to that. We can all tell that's not a very good thing and it doesn’t belong in the water with all the animals and plants in the water
The Oil that has spilled in the ocean or is in the ocean affects animals such as birds, fish, sea turtles, sea lions, and much more. Oil also affects underwater vegetation and marsh grasses. the oil produces chemicals that lead to cancer as well. another example is the deepwater horizon spill that happened in the gulf of mexico on 10, 2010
Oxygen lasts in oceans. When water collects heat it expands. The water is warm because that is where 90% of the world heat goes. So the warmer the water gets the less oxygen there is in the ocean. Pollution is depressing. We can make a change if we all do one thing.
