I was born by the sea in Shanghai, where I turned fourteen. Two years ago, I moved to Canada’s Pacific coast. In a way, I have always felt I belonged to the Pacific Ocean. I’ve seen photos of marine animals stuck in plastic bags, and suffering from ingesting plastic materials. The shocking statistics of how severe ocean pollution is, and how great the impact is, concerns me, especially the huge amount of non-biodegradable plastic in the sea. This is one of the main factors that affect the ocean. I created this animation to raise awareness and let people start to think about what they can do for the ocean. Hopefully, through our efforts, our oceans can have a better future.
