The black bubbles erode the ocean. They come from the root of the chimneys that are polluting the environment. The fish and corals that are shrouded by the bubbles fade away, which represents the collapsing of the marine ecosystem. The lonely whale has been trapped in the contaminated environment but has no place to go; the hungry polar bears have no idea how to survive on the destroyed ice field. All these sad scenes are caused by us, humans. The idea of ocean environmental protection had never appealed to me until I saw images of marine animals that are suffering from environmental pollution. They didn’t do anything wrong but are paying for humans' faults. We need to save our ocean and give a clean environment back to the animals—the real owners of the ocean.
