As humans, we must realize the importance of maintaining a balance in the ecosystem. Every species has its own part to play, and it is our responsibility to maintain a safe environment for their survival. Marine ecosystems are being destroyed worldwide due to different human activities pushing various species to the brink of extinction. Plastic pollution is a primary reason due to which our seas and oceans are getting adversely affected.
The uncontrollable use of plastics all over the world needs to be corrected at the earliest. Alternatives to plastics are being worked upon, but its extensive use needs to be implemented soon to protect marine life from the harmful impacts of plastics.
