Why should you care?
Well, picture this: pollution will not affect you directly, but it will affect every organism in this whole ecosystem, including you and me.
- Runoff and overheated water causes hypoxia
- Hypoxia, along with other problems like ghost nets, cause declines in sensitive creature populations and increase in pollution in surviving ones.
- Decrease in sensitive organisms lead to starvation for organisms that prey on them (Fish)
- Decrease in Fishing industry and other important economic empires.
- Decrease in available resources to support human life.
