Marine plastic pollution kills ocean wildlife and it is mistakenly eaten by marine life which we ingest. Our oceans, the source of 50% of atmospheric oxygen, are also threatened by overfishing, fertiliser and sewage run-off that creates oxygen-depleted dead zones. Habitat destruction is also caused by toxic dumping, oil spills, and warming and acidification linked to climate change.

South African fish stocks, on which tens of thousands of jobs in coastal communities depend, are in decline while demand for sea food continues to grow.

#SEATHEBIGGERPICTURE Ocean Initiative is a Cape Town-based organisation established in 2018, focusing on coastal environmental education and ocean pollution awareness through school outreach programmes and public talks.
