Save the oceans together!
The sea is an important habitat, but it is not only threatened, but is also in acute danger. Because the seas are full of plastic waste. This is not just microplastics, but also larger waste, such as bags or cigarette butts. Fish, seabirds and marine mammals suffer from this as they ingest the plastic and then die from it. This is because they think the garbage is a source of food. Because plastic breaks down slowly, it remains a potential hazard for many centuries/millennia. But this can also be dangerous for humans, as a food source that has been around for thousands of years is slowly drying up.
When we think of the beach, this is probably what we imagine:
But that's not the case everywhere, let's take a look at a beach in India.
But thanks to Green Worms, the beach doesn't stay that way, but is cleaned.
A look at the numbers reveals how acute the situation is; there are hundreds of thousands of pieces of plastic waste per square kilometer of sea. 4.8 – 12.7 million tons of plastic end up in the oceans every year. It seems to be particularly bad for seabirds; scientists have found pieces of plastic in the stomachs of 93 percent of fulmars. They also expect that by 2050 every seabird will have ingested pieces of plastic.
