We are all connected - the land, the sky, the ocean, the animals, and us; we all make up this planet. There cannot be one without the other. If we don’t stop polluting our surroundings and taking them for granted, then all of us will be affected. The ocean is in dire need of our help, as pollution takes its toll; small fish that we don’t think about, clownfish that we recognize from “Finding Nemo,” and jellyfish that we think are hideous - they all suffer from our careless behavior. All these living beings are beautiful and are unable to help themselves, so we need to help them. Without them our lives would be colorless. It is our job to look after our planet, not only the land, but also the water that covers 71% of it. To stay connected, we must spread awareness.
