Those of us who do not live right near the ocean, perceive the water pollution issue as something far distant. We often hear such numbers as 8 million tons of plastic being thrown into the ocean every year or 51 trillion of microplastic particles residing in the World Ocean, or that 80% of all garbage in the water is made of plastic. However, for some reason, we are not touched by these figures and remain passive. Apparently, for most people, it is not quite clear what the key issue is and how it directly affects each one of us. This lack of clarity gives much room for maneuver to the entities that benefit from abusing nature and polluting the environment. If this tendency of marine pollution persists, by 2050 there will be more litter than fish in our oceans.
With so many divers around the world staying at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic and longing to be back in the water, we have decided to create a list of activities that will help you channel your adoration for the underwater world and make the most of the time you’re spending on the shore. Now’s the perfect opportunity to brush up on your knowledge, practice a few skills, read books, watch movies and listen to podcasts, you’ve been putting off for a while.
