Covering 71 percent of the Earth’s surface, the world’s oceans are the largest producers of fresh drinking water through their essential role in the water cycle, regulate the planet’s temperature by absorbing solar radiation, and provide habitat for phytoplankton that produce half of all oxygen in the atmosphere. Yet, the Earth’s oceans are being contaminated by the ever-growing amounts of pollutants, with an estimated 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris currently in the ocean, the majority beneath the surface. Plastics and associated toxins threaten the oceans’ ecosystems, with deadly consequences for seabirds, fish and marine animals, as well as humans. To contribute to vital ocean health and raise environmental awareness, Global Peace Foundation Philippines invite students and volunteers to join a massive coastal cleanup drive along Manila Bay in the Philippines on September 21, 2019.
