The Pacific Ocean has a long history of being pivotal in the lives and livelihoods of the people who live by it. It is also home to an abundance of aquatic life that depends on this vast waterway for survival.
The Pacific Ocean extends from one end to another, winding through all four corners around our planet with its icy waters meeting warm currents near Australia. The world’s largest ocean offers some protection against rising sea levels as other oceans have warmed at faster rates than their counterpart; however, pollution poses a threat to marine animals such as mammals like seals or whales if they consume plastic debris which may be carcinogenic due exposure over time.
For the most part, however, the Pacific Ocean is in better shape than our other oceans. Our world’s ecosystems and marine life are threatened by ocean acidification which can affect sea creatures such as planktonic organisms which play crucial roles in maintaining clean water, absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and providing significant food sources for all living things.
