My drawing depicts a situation that is happening very often. Sea creatures become tangled in rope, plastic bags, and other waste that continues to pollute their habitats. The larger seal, shown in the picture, which is trapped in garbage, represents the parent of the smaller seal, who cautiously approaches the parent. This seal species is known as a ringed seal. Climate change is becoming a threat to their lives, melting their icy homes in the Arctic. This is caused by global warming and pollution in the air that raises many gas levels in the atmosphere of the earth such as carbon dioxide, trapping in the heat and raising temperature levels. In my artwork, a scuba diver is seen, helping the seal and comforting it. This is an important part because it shows that there is still hope in saving marine life. By working as a group, the whole world can contribute to helping our polluted oceans regain its clear waters.
