We as human owe our lives to the industrial revolution. However, as we try to survive Mother Nature have become the primary victim due to reckless human behaviours.

80 percent of the marine rubbish originates from the inland. If you reduce the garbage, the result will be tremendous. Start by recycling your plastic cans, papers, glass and other non-biodegradable items and be careful when you choose rubbish removal company.
Join community beach cleanups
Such activities are fun and at the same time, you save marine life. It could be your family, friend or individuals; any effort will make a difference. The best time for clean-up includes holidays as many people will be willing to join.

Any water source or way, be it stream or river, is part of the drainage system. If you don’t pollute the system, the water which ends up in the oceans will be safe.
Give a hand to organisation aiming to protect the ocean
You can either offer financial support or volunteering to work free in their marine protection project. If it takes a demonstration to keep the marine ecosystem safe, take a banner and make sure the world hear your cry.
