Mother Ocean Day
Every year on the 10th of May, Mother Ocean Day is a day we celebrate. A day that is all about raising awareness for the issues our oceans are facing and what we can do to help.
The ocean is essential for life on planet earth. It covers 71% of the earth’s surface and is home to over 97% of the earth’s water. The ocean also plays a vital role in regulating the earth’s climate. It helps to control the earth’s temperature by absorbing heat from the sun and releasing it back into the atmosphere. The ocean also helps to shape weather patterns by circulating warm and cold air around the globe. Without the ocean, life on earth would be impossible.
The ocean is under threat from a variety of human activities. The biggest threats come from pollution, overfishing, and climate change.
Pollution comes in many forms. One of the most common forms of pollution is plastic. Every year, millions of tons of plastic end up in the ocean. This plastic can be extremely harmful to marine life. It can choke and strangle animals, and it can also be mistaken for food. This can lead to animals becoming malnourished or even dying.
Overfishing is another big threat to the ocean. Every year, we catch billions of fish from the ocean. This is having a devastating impact on fish populations. Many fish populations are in decline, and some species are even at the risk of extinction. This is not only bad for the fish, but it’s also bad for the people who rely on them for food.
Climate change is also a major threat to the ocean. As the earth’s temperature rises, the ocean absorbs more heat. This can lead to a variety of problems, such as coral bleaching and ocean acidification. Climate change also causes sea levels to rise, which can lead to coastal flooding.
There are many things we can do to help protect the ocean. One of the best things we can do is to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. This will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and it will also help to reduce the amount of plastic we produce. We can also help by supporting sustainable fishing practices and by volunteering for beach cleanups.
So let’s all do our part to protect Mother Ocean. Let’s make every day Mother Ocean Day.
