The world community is facing a large problem. This problem has been growing larger and more quickly every year, and is something that is just going to keep growing until there are no way back from it. In all the oceans in the world, there has been to consistencies that are going to continue to be there unless we like it or not. The first one is marine animals like fish, turtles, whales and other aquatic animals that thrive under the surface of the sea, the second is plastic. The material we know from our dining equipment to our shopping bags and other everyday objects.
Plastic objects are contaminating the seabed and are injuring and or killing the aquatic animals in the world, animals that are unknowingly eating the ever-growing supply plastic materials in the ocean. The problem is causing endangered species making it a mission for our self to rescue these animals.
- Reflect the impact the documentary had on you
The documentary “The plastic whale” made an impact on me. Seeing beautiful creatures suffer under our own making is very tragic to witness, and knowing that one whale dying from plastic bags is just the tip of the iceberg is tremendously horrifying. As a person who considers me as someone who cares about our environment, watching our own shorelines covered in plastic waste makes me very sad and makes me think about every time I’ve caught myself of others in littering. This documentary makes me wanna become more aware of how I treat my own surroundings.
- Do you think it will help the oceans that we put more focus on this problem? Why/Why not?
Of course, I think by shedding a light on an issue will help the people of the world to react, and so I think it is going to have a positive effect. If you give people something that makes us believe that it is important, I have faith in the human race to make an effort for a better tomorrow.
