🌊What Is In The Water?🌊

garbage in water Water pollution is a big problem in the world. Water pollution can affect the world is many different ways.  Many people throw garbage into the rivers, oceans and lakes. What many people do not realize is that the garbage makes the water dirty and full of bacteria. Many fish and other animals die because of the bacteria in the water. If fish have bacteria on them then it’s very bad for us. When fishes have disease then they die faster. If they die faster than that means less fish to eat which means we lose food. When the water has bacteria and we feed it to animals then the animals get affect so they die. This means less meat to eat.

When they drink this dirty water they get affected. In the water there are bacteria that can lead to diseases. Over 10,000 people die each day because of dirty water [Water pollution.

When people die of diseases it means that the disease can spread. Which means more people can die of this disease.

If I had the chance to change the world I would. I would help the creatures in the water have cleaner water to swim in and live in. I would help all the people in the world have cleaner water to drink and bath in. You can help too by not putting any garbage in the water. You can pick up all the garbage to help clean the water. You can donate money to foundations that help put clean water in the glasses of poor people that cannot afford clean water.

 

If we don`t help the ocean then sometimes the water will turn different colors. Now the water is blue but in some countries the water is brown or green. In China some of the water is orange. Some people think it`s because of pollution.

One way you can help protect the ocean is by riding a recyclable boat. This boat is totally made out of recyclable things like plastic water bottles. This boat does not have an engine but it does use solar power to move. This means that the boat will have no oil leaks which will help keep the ocean cleaner.
