Description

For overfishing I propose that periodically we slightly expand fish sanctuaries and modify regulations to allow populations more time and more areas to grow. For pollution, the areas of pollution should be sectioned and ranked, then starting with the highest priority areas start pollution cleanup with both man and machine. Once the pollution is collected, I propose that the use of plastic eating bacteria and caterpillars be implemented to further break pollution down. In regard to habitat destruction I think the best approach is to treat the areas like a garden, plant new seeds, give them the nutrients and support so that they can flourish. Ocean warming and acidification are two issues from the same problems, pollution and climate change. In order to help combat these issues I think that implementing filters on and around high priority dump sites and starting campaigns specifically small global ads on social media to help raise more awareness about the issues at hand and how serious they are.
