My fragile envioronment report:




This is my fragile envioronment report.


My fragile enviornment report is about the oceans near and in Indonesia


The ocean is a fragile environment because it is the place where you mostly use transportation before cars and trains and other transportation were invented.
The Pacific Ocean is a fragile environment because of human activity. Here are some:

Eating sea creatures.
Dumping waste.
Taking the animals and coral for display.

And all of these things decreases some of the animals and does not complete the food chain very properly and so all of the animals of the great Pacific Ocean dies.

This is the explanation of each human activity that was motioned:

Eating sea creatures:

We humans eat sea creatures and that is quite good because it is the part of the food chain. But now that the human population is increasing that means that more people eats more then the balanced food chain. This includes people eating more sushi and other dishes of sea animals. Also which increase the eating and decrease the living.

Dumping waste:

All of us make waste especially from our body. And where does all that waste go? Well there are 3 main places: The Dumpster, The recycling factory or the sea. Yes all that trash is mostly dumped to the sea and it kills not only the sea creatures but also coral reefs and plankton. People from all around the world dump their garbage through rivers and then it reaches to the sea bed where most of the fish and coral lives. We dump all types of trash such as food wrappings and plastic bags daily. Some factories dump oil and toxic waste and that is very dangerous to all animals of the sea.

Taking the animals and coral for display:

Most fishermen do not only take animals to eat it only but also keep them for display or sell them for display. This kills the coral and the shelter of the fish and the sea creatures. Mostly they take coral because it’s a good display but if they get the coral from sea water (which is salty) it might die (the coral) because it has to be in the real ocean. It takes years to form but it only takes days till it dies.

I know theses things because I saw them with my real eyes I went to Bunaken, Manado, Northern of Sulawesi and saw that most of the coral and fish aren’t very colorful at all. There are little groups of coral and fishes living together. But the rest is all grey and holds no life at all except for some starfish.


Soon if we continue our world will be an empty grey desert which is like the most of the ocean around Indonesia like the sea at the beach of Ancol some parts of Bunaken and most of the rivers in Indonesia are all brown.




So save this enviornment before it's too late!
