Ocean trash threatens our aquatic wildlife more and more with each passing year. Commercial fishing nets are discarded into the sea, and whether intentionally or not, entangle animals with no chance for escape. Rubber like that from balloons ends up in the ocean and is deadly if consumed by animals who think it may be food. Plastic 6-pack can holders strangle small marine life.
It's hard to imagine, but our actions in our daily lives carry serious implications for the health of our oceans. Any litter that doesn't go to a landfill will almost undoubtedly — in one way or another — end up in a body of water that flows to the ocean.
We all need to participate in protecting our oceans' ecosystems if we truly want to affect change. Don't let animals like the sea lion in the photo suffer as a result of our negligence. Sign the pledge saying you will limit your litter and then click more info to see more ways to protect the oceans.
