The oceans cover 71 percent of the earth and are essential for plant and animal life to survive. More than 3 billion people around the world make their living from the oceans. But pollution from plastic, oil, and sewage is threatening to destroy the marine biosphere. Ocean pollution is widespread and difficult to clean, but new technologies and dedicated people are giving the oceans new life.
