PCSO partners with Navy, DENR for coastal cleanup
MetadataShow full item record
Marine pollution — as people know but do not really pay attention to – is any human-made material that is thrown, abandoned or amassed on the coast, bay, beach, waterways that lead to the ocean, or in the ocean itself. Regardless of whether the disposal act is intentional, unintentional, direct or indirect, marine pollution is one of the global concerns that many non-government organizations (NGOs) and government agencies address to bring back the pristine nature of this wonderful natural resource. Marine mammals and fish can mistake floating trash for food; and if ingested, it can choke them or block their digestive systems. Trash-congested bays make seawater dirty.
