How Endangered Are Marine Animals

Classifying just how endangered the many species of marine wildlife are is a difficult task as there are so many to count! However, even with that being said there are some animals which are struggling more than others. Many species such as whales, sea turtles, and sharks have populations which are decreasing at an alarming rate. It is not just the larger species which are in danger in the waters around the world though. One of the most important elements in the entirety of the world’s oceans, coral, is in grave danger of becoming extinct too, and this could have a disastrous knock-on effect for the food chain.

Threats Marine Wildlife Are Facing

The world’s oceans are facing a number of problems with regards to the future for the animal life that calls them home. Some of the main problems are:

  • Pollution – with the oceans considered an easy target for waste disposal, a lot of human waste and products often end up in the sea. This includes products that are extremely dangerous or hazardous to marine wildlife such as plastic bags and micro-beads from shower gels.
  • Overfishing – as the human population grows, so does the demand for fish and the marine ecosystem is suffering as a result.
Fast Facts
  • Jellyfish have been around for quite a while... more than 650 million years to be exact! This means that they out date both dinosaurs and sharks which shows just how old they really are!
  • Thousands of marine creatures die each year by mistakenly swallowing plastic bags as they think that they resemble jellyfish.
  • “Rain of Fish” is an annual weather event in which hundreds of fish rain from the sky onto the city Yori in Honduras.
