Ocean pollution is at an all time high. Condorferries.co.uk reported, in 2021, 8 million tons of plastic is thrown in the ocean every year. By 2050, plastic will outweigh fish. Eating wild seafood in the future is also said to be a health risk if ocean pollution keeps on continuing.
According to condorferries.co.uk, there is an estimated amount of 5.25 trillion tons of plastic waste in our oceans as of 2021. Business Insider reported 15 sea animals have gone extinct due to Ocean Pollution. If we want to stop more species from being extinct, we need to spread awareness and do our part.
Monitor the pollution in the ocean and bring awareness to take action.
Our Action Plan:
1. Monitor ocean pollutants and radioactivity using
(a) Commercially available equipment/kits,
(b) Survey physical pollutants, such as garbage, plastic bags.
2. Generate a network of students worldwide to participate and build an international marine database.
3. Try to obtain sponsorship/support from bio-tech and IT corporations.
4. Bring awareness to the general public as well as the government to take action. For example, EPA does not monitor radioactivity in the ocean.
