Oceans are home to a huge ecosystem of marine species. They help in preserving nature and making the environment better. Climate and human activities are affecting the ocean ecosystem. Many species are becoming endangered. It is important for us to protect this ecosystem. Here are 4 reasons why we should be concerned about ocean conservation.
1. Oceans are the largest ecosystem on Earth
Oceans make up more than 90% of the habitable space on the earth. According to researchers, 50 – 80% of all life is found underwater. But only 5% of it has been explored. By protecting the ocean, we will be able to discover all the ecosystem of the ocean. Rainforests, swamps, lakes, etc. depend on the health of the ocean. So, if the ocean is affected, these are affected too.
2. Oceans provides the greatest support for Earth
The ocean controls the temperature and generates half of the oxygen we breathe in. It absorbs the carbon dioxide that influences the weather. We get food from the ocean.

3. The ocean is home to some unique species
Sea turtles live forever, and the first species of shark was found more than 420 million years ago. But these species will soon become extinct if not protected. According to the World Wildlife Fune, only 300 North Atlantic right whales are now left in the world.
4. The coral reef and will be destroyed
Travelers won’t be able to see the beautiful beaches or natural beauty of the ocean anymore as the coral reef will be destroyed. The marine animals will be affected too. So, the future generation will only be able to see water creatures in the zoo or aquarium. There won’t be any more snorkeling or diving in the ocean.
By taking measure to conserve the ocean we can protect the coral reefs and the marine life. We can have a balanced ecosystem and protect our environment.
