The popular myth that marine protection has nothing to do with “regular” people, could not be more false. The ocean is ⅔ of the earth, and any damage to the ocean causes serious problems not only for the Earth but humans as well. Ever since the industrial revolution in the eighteenth century, people’s explosion of natural resources and the release of abundant carbon dioxide have made the temperature of Earth to levels never thought of in the past. These are all causes of global warming, which severely hurts our ocean ecosystems. If the health of our ocean deteriorates, all our environments follow in its place.
