Water pollution poses a serious threat to individual organisms, species, and the ecosystems they belong to. Many of the toxins that are so frequently released into the sea instantly damage the health of the organisms around it. Every time pollution increases in the oceans, it takes a huge toll on marine life. Animals choke on plastic, get entrapped in pollution, or are poisoned by toxins. Entire species have been wiped out by chemicals released into the ocean and it only gets worse every day.
