When we do our dives we like to film and show the most beautiful images of our underwater world; especially addressing those who see only the surface of the sea and do not wear mask and snorkel, or more sophisticated equipment such as wet suits and self-breathing. mare da amare e proteggere
It happens more often, however, to come across images like those that we show you that highlight the low respect for the marine environment and the degradation due to human activities. The sea is a complex ecosystem that we all have to respect and love because it could ultimately turn against us. We have also made a commitment to document the things that pollute or destroy the marine environment to make everyone aware of how to keep our sea clean. In this video we show you a tire that we found buried and that has been there for who knows how long. Someone did not know how to dispose of it and threw it into the sea …? Or was it simply lost by a trawler or a ship that used it as a fender …? We do not know! We know that it is a foreign element that will degrade perhaps in many years like plastic, aluminum, lost fishing nets and other polluting materials.
Greta Thunberg, Swedish activist for sustainable development is inviting young people from all over the world, and the governments of various countries, to commit themselves to safeguarding the future of planet Earth, that is, the home of all the living beings that are part of it, and therefore also of the great marine ecosystem put in serious difficulties because of pollution in general and pollution of plastics in particular.
The site www.intotheblue.it has often shown videos and images on the effects that climate change and pollution produce on the marine ecosystem, inviting everyone to take an active role in our small daily actions. It is now clear to everyone that plastics and microplastics enter the food chain of fish and marine organisms and consequently in the food chain also of man as a final consumer; with serious repercussions on health and quality of life. mare da amare e proteggere
