Scientists predict that the oceans’ oxygen levels could drop 3 to 4% by the year 2100. As that happens, oceans will undergo drastic losses of biodiversity, and entire ecosystems could be wiped out. Why is oxygen disappearing? Why are oceans losing oxygen? How could this affect us? Is there anything we can do to stop this? Oceans losing 3-4% of their oxygen may not sound very threatening, but it’s a big deal. These massive bodies of water cover most of Earth. We know that about 200 million years ago, oxygen was depleted in the oceans. This led to a massive extinction of species. With oxygen levels dropping in the oceans again, could we face the same loss of ocean life? And if you like to eat lobster, shrimp, or fish, will you have enough, or any, to eat in the future?

在台灣,由於工業發達,人口稠密,環保意識低落,我們周遭的海洋早已死亡,如果你背氣瓶下去觀察,一點生機都沒有

When im older I want to start doing something about things like climate change.. i want to work with a lot of things like animal sanctuaries and i want to plant trees. I remember when me and my cousin(s) we’re going around our community centre picking up rubbish it would be amazing to experience seeing the recently extinct animals like Northern White Rhinos and that bird what was it? The Spix's macaw i think the type of bird that Rio was though we probably won’t see them again..if you actually want to live in a world that’s nice to live in people please try to do something even just picking up rubbish around your area feed animals like ducks try and get them something healthy instead of bread but still feed them:)
