The water environment is important since it is the main source of life, but it has been polluted throughout the years. It ends up destroying sea animal habitats.
There is a history of oil spills that have happened in different parts of the world. This killed many sea animals because their habitats are being destroyed from the oil spills. Oil spills can change the environment for fish and other creatures that live in the sea and other bodies of water.
Trash has become a major problem since many animals can get caught in plastic and become injured. Some animals eat plastic waste thinking that it is food and die because they cannot digest plastic.
