Hi mIss Florence,
The video says that on the Pacific Ocean, lovely dolphins live, eat fish, fish eat plancton, and plancton is disappearing because in the North Pacific Ocean there is like a 100-kilometer long plastic garbage whirlpool, in which sea gulls and fish eat the trapped plancton in the disaster of plastic garbage, and start dying! A Foundation is studying the plastic by taking it out of the sea and watching it with telescopes, to see how to help these poor animals!
See you,

Hi miss Florence,
There are beatifull animals in the sea and many people is throwing plastic to the sea. In every kilometer there is some plastic polution. THere is a foundation that studies the plastic polution and they are amazed of what they had seen. There is more plastic than zooplanton.

Hello Mrs Florence!
What this video talks about is that: In the Pacific Ocean there is a huge garbage(with plastics and other stuf)whirlpool which is very contaminated. There are dolfins or other animals such as sea gulls or sharks eat fish and fish eat planktons and the plankton are starting to dissapear. The seagulls or the fish eat the garbage with plankton and get very sick and start dying. there is a group that investigated this with very speacil microscopes and trying to see how to solve this problem.

hi miss florence
this is are seven things about that i leard from the video....
1.there are plastic afloat on the ocean

2.there are fish and animals living there

3.there are animals that think the plastic if food so the eat the plastic

4.the plastic becomes into small peaces and contaminate the ocean

5.there are petrolio on the ocean that are killing animals because it is always there

6.there are trash on the beaches and there are bots that get some trash from the ocean to help

7.in the north sea gyre there is a big amount of plastic afloat that looks like a swirl

i know more but i have seven clearer

Hi miss Florence, this video says that in the pacific ocean, there are dolfins. A fundation is studying the plastic in the sea. In each KM, the is a plastic palution. There is more plastic tan zooplanton. The oceans in general are very contaminated. Fish need to eat plancton but plancton is desapearing because of plastic. Let´s give a hand to these POOR ANIMALS. Don´t Throw Plastic to the water. Recicle IT!

Hi Miss Florence :
- We should throw plastics rubish into the ocean .
-Animals and fish are dying because they feed them selfs with plastic things.
- There is 7% more plastics particals than plancton in the north pacific.
-Birds were found dead with bottle plastics lids in their stomachs .
-We must look after OUR PLANET .
-Human are de cause of contamination .
-Luckely ther are people who cares about these problems and are trying to change them.

Hello Miss Florence,
Thank you for puting up this video. Seven things I learnt of this video are:
That the hole ocean is covered by plastic everywhere you go.
Animals eat plastic objects and that take them to the sickness and death.
A special foundation is working this problem but we too need to help.
If we through plastic we make an animal sick but everything is connected and if we break one step for life in the see we break the life of everyone.
I don't have anything more to say but the video was really interesting.
Keep on posting
See you in class

Hello Miss Florence,
The post was bery enteresting and I lernt a lot about it.I lobed the bisit we had of Lili´s husband,I hope we will have a bisit like this one soon, I am impacient to have an other one. The video says that on the Pacific Ocean, lovely dolphins live there, they eat fish, fish eat plancton, and plancton is disappearing beause of plastic, I also lernt lots of things more.

Miss Florence:
This vedio says that there are many dolphins in the osean. They eat fish. And the video tell us that the fish eats another animal, in which each time there`s less. And they are dying because people contaminates the sea, and through the sea, the water travels a long way till it gets to a place full of water called the ocean. So why dont we help and we make sure that we are doing correct things like throwing things to the garbage, or why dont we help not contaminating?
What tought me this video?
That we have to tell the people who live with us, to STOP because if we dont stop, we are going to make a worse world. If we see sombody throuing a paper to the floor, we have to stop him and tell him, to not do that.
Like that we can help our planet, in a BIG word, our place in a MIDIUM word, and our HOME in a SMALL word.

Hi Miss Florence,
it's very bad how our water is contaminated by all this plastics,there are like 100 kilometers of plastic in the north sea, and a lot of animals of the water ar dieing because the most tiny ones think that the plastic is food, because it looks like plancton, so they eat that and they die. So then the bigest animals have nothing to eat. The life chain is broken.
I learn a lot in this video and it's very good that the foundations of scientists are working hard to help us!

Hi miss florence
We shouldn throw any tipe of plastic things to the water because the poor fishes are eating that thinking it is food and they can died, and that is really serious. There is a group of investigators that release that there is more plastic things that zooplanton. Thhere is petrolio in the sea and many fishes are dying because they live there. But also there are many trashes and things like that for the people to frow their things there and not in the ocean. Lets tried and remember these always after trowing something to the ocean.

Hi miss Florence,
I learnt in this video that we dont have to throw more garbage to the sea because many fish will die. The process is this; dolphins eat fish, fish eat plancton. Plancons are disapearing because of plastic, fish that eat plancton will disapear because of they no having food and dolphins will die because thy dont have food to eat. Scientists are studying plastic and the trapped fish that are in there. There is an enormous cicle of trash in the north pacific ocean and we have to start reducing it!

Hello miss Florence,
The video tells us that, in the Pacific ocean dolphins live and eat fish, fish eat plancton , and the plancton is going away because in The north there is a 100 kilometers long plastic. Fish and Sea gulls eat the trapped plancton and they die :(. A fundation is studiyng the plastic by taking samples of it and exploring them with telescopes, to see what they can do so that this stops happening.
Happy Weekend!

2. Dolfins live there.
3. There are fish and animals living in the Pasific Osean.

Hi miss Florence
I learnt..........
1. The oceans are getting full of plastic. That contaminates the water allot.
2. Seaguls and fish eat plankton and the plastic make fish confuse so they eat plastic.
3. In a a certain distance of whater there are aproximately 6 pound of plastic and 1 pound of plankton.
4. In the video they show us the they have some bags that can measure or get the quantity of plastic that passes through that bag on a certain time.
5. Investigators saw that birds die because the plastic gets stuck on their neck or in any part of their body and that infects the animal.
6. Nurdles (pre-production plastic) transport toxins in the oceans enviorment.
7. Plasti Resen Pellets absorve and concentrates toxins such us PCB, and DDE up to 1,000,000 times their level in ambient sea water.

HI!!!
Here is what I learnt:
1* The plastic in the ocean is making a whirlpool wich seaguls and fish are eating and by eating that they DIE!!!

2* A grup of people is investigating the garbige. Thay take the garbege out of the ocean and study them by microscope.

3*Trash on the beaches

4* The plastic in the ocean gets smoller every time until they fall to the bottom of the ocean.

5*thar is 7% of more plastic in the North Pacific than plancton

6*Animals are loosing nutrients

7*there are some bags that can measure/get the quantity of plastic that goese into that bag a ceartain quantity of time.

Hear is a part of all I learnt in the video.

Miss Florence,
I have learnt that dolphins feed on fish and that both fish and birds eat zooplankton. Due to our pollution the consequences observed in the oceans are quite severe and is destroying that ecosystem.
1. In the ocean the plastic trash that is thrown by people degrades into smaller parts that are known as “nurdles” and then into even smaller plastic molecules.
2. Toxic hydrophobic pollutants strongly adhere to the surface of these nurdles and smaller plastic molecules becoming here 100% more concentrated than in the water.
3. Plankton and nurdles are physically similar but nurdles lack the nutrients and what is even worse are very toxic and can’t be digested.
4. Animals that eat plankton are tricked by the nurdles similarity and eat it thinking they are having a scoop of plankton.
5. Animals that eat the ‘new’ plankton turn out with a lack of nutrients and end dying either from intoxication, undernourishment or both of them. Furthermore, the nurdles can get stuck in the airways and the animals can then suffocate.
6. Investigators trawl the sea waters searching for different water samples to analyze the mass of plastic they contain.
7. For each pound of plankton in the investigator’s samples there are six pounds of plastic together with them.
8. According to the investigators searches, there is no sample from the sea waters without containing plastic contamination.

Makena.

Hi Miss Florance
I watched the video, adn it shocked me.
In the Pacific ocean there is a cycle fo life here it talks about the dolphin who eats the fish that get plantom from the water surface, there plantom have to share the place with plastic. Birds also eat plantom and many of them wher killed because confusing plantom with plastic.
Plastic doesn´t dissapear it transformes in to small plastic peacies that some arive to the shore and some stay in the open ocean. The Pacific ocean is full of plastic in his surface and shores are to.
People like the captian in the video WANT to make something at the respect but it costs alot of money, this captian and his scientific tripulation get some stuff of the surface and compare with microscopes and other scince instrument to see what is really in the surface. It compares a plantom with a piece of plastic wich the plastic is bigger!!! Other things where found there.
We really need to make something at respect, and now!!!
Creatures will start to exstint and water will becaome unpure.

Ps: I also heard acuatic turtles are dying because they eat jellyfish and they confuse with the supermarket bags.

Hi Florence:
Seven of the things the video said are that:

1) There is a lot of trash floating on the sea.

2) Animals think that the trash is food and they eat it, and then they die.

3) The plastic becomes into small pieces and is contaminating more the ocean.

4) There are trashes on the beaches.

5) There are boats that recollect some of the garbage that is floating in the sea.

6) Some animals in the sea eat fish, and fish eats plankton, but plankton is disappearing.

7) There is a foundation that investigates about this contamination and they are very amazed of what they had seen.

Hi Miss Florence:
Im so angry!!
I have written this for four times! but the computer got stuck and I am tired of write it ALL again!
Well, I have not understand the video very well because I dont understand very well their english.
I have notice that in the ocean theres lot of plastic, that gets there and while the time pass tha plastic turn into very very little pieces and that the animals died by trying to eat it or something similar.
Thats why when people goes to see what they have catch they see that they have animals, like fishes or dolfins that are dead!
I have notice that people go with special boats that hang something at the back and when the boat goes it goes catching every little piece of plastic that is in the pacific ocean where they also catch animals how I said before.
Sorry but I could'nt see the rest of the video cause of my computer, I suppuse that when I go back to school I will watch the resth of the video in IT.
see you tomorrow

Florence,
1.. This happens in the Pacific Ocen were lots of animals live, including dolphins
2.. Dolphins feed on fish that feed on sowplancton that live in the surface, but since people throw plastic to the water fish and birds accidentaly consuming plastic.
3.. And any plastic that enters the ocean remains there, braking into little pieces.
4.. A group of people take samples of the plastic and sowplancton, and weights them, and compares them.
5.. For every 7 pounds of plastic that they got they only got 1 pound of sowplancton.
6.. Every place that they went had this plastic, polution, not one place was without being poluted by plastic.
7.. When fish, and birds eath plastic, this causes a very big hormone destruction.

Hello Miss Florence,
This are the things I learnet watching this video.
1)Plancton is shearing the ocean surface with lots of tiny plastic particles.
2)Birds and fish think that those plastic particles are food and it them.
3)Plastic is not a biodegradable material so it does not decompose and stays there.
4)A foundation is doing experiments to understand more about this global inviremental disastre.
5)The place were more plastic particles are is in the centre of the central Pacific tire.
6)They took some water from the ocean and saw that there were 6 pounds of plastic particles and only 1 pound of plancton
7)There is no place without plastic in the Pacific ocean.
We dont have to throw trash to the ocean.

Hello Miss Florenece:

There is a great whirlpool of plastic in the Pacific. Dolfins eats a fish that eats plankont and plankton is disapearing because in the Pacific there are lots of plastic ( dolphins will die because of this because their food will be contamined)This plastic is breaking into smaeller pieces so then more fish will be afected. A foundation is making experiences to see the plastic and try to stop this catastrofic problem. They had found that for every 6 pounds of plastic there were 1 pounds of plankton. Every place that they stopped was full of plastic, there was no place free. Birds are also being afected. Very strong video. See you in class!!!

Mati said...

1 That dolphins live in the Pacific Ocean, they eat fish.
2 The fish eat plankton
3 The fish and birds are now consuming plastic because the plankton is mixing with some diminute pieces of plankton.
4 Because the plastic is not biodegreible, every piece of plastic that is in the ocean will stay there.
5 A fundacion is very surprised to see that birds die because pieces of plastic get stuck on its neck and that is toxic.
6 The fundation traveled 100km cleaning the ocean.
7 If the quantity of trash keeps encreasing the world will be a disaster, we have to throw plastic bottles to trash cans, not to the sea.

Hello miss Florence,

The things i learned forom this video are:
1) DOlfins Primary food is the fish, fish eat other small insects in the water
2)The insects that fishes eat come from plastic that make very bad the fish
3) Every plastic remains in water, puts in tiny small peaces and stay in the water for a long time untill it goes to a shore or its taking out
4) More plastic trash appearing in the beaches, filling in with trash
5) Theres almost enough waith of plastic than water
6) No places are free of this plastic polution
7) If Birds or fish dont get enough nutrients they will bprobobley die. A Birde ate a shampoo bottle top
Thats the thing i learned FLorence

Hi Florence,
These video is beautifull. I learned that:
1) The humans contaminate the Ocean. 2)The dolphins eat fishes and the fishes eat some plancotms and that molecules eat a little of the plastic so I all the animals have plastic in their body.
3)There is more plastic that plancton
4)No part of the Ocean is free form the plastic
5)The birds are looseing nutrients because of the plastic in their organs.
6)27 thousand is plastic in a sample of how many plastic is in the OCEAN.
7)The Ocean is like a zoo.

Hi Miss Florence!
I think that it is very sad what is happening to the world.

Fish eat planktons that now share the surface waters with pieces of plastic and since fish and birds eat it they are consuming plastic in their daily plankton. There are a lot of animals dying very frequently because of this. It is quite impossible to make this disappear because any plastic in the ocean reminds there and it dissolves and goes braking into smaller pieces until it arrives to a beach’s shore. The area that has most plastic is the center of the Center Pacific. This scientific uses more than 1 method to investigate about the ocean. He and his lab partners discovered that in every 6 pounds of plastic there was only 1 pound of plankton so there is six times more plastic that plankton. That forms isles of plastic in the middle of the ocean. The Pacific Ocean is almost entirely occupied by plastic. The Ocean has everyday more plastic and this is getting worse and worse.

Hi Miss Florence

This video start telling about the Pacific Ocean, they said that dolphins live there and they eat plancton. They said that the plastic (like the bags of supermarket)are contaminated a lot the Pacific Ocean!! They also said that they are more plastic bags than plancton! And this affect us too because in the beautiful beaches they are going to have garbage! The beautiful fish that we have are dying beacuse they eat contaminated food. We are contaminated the oceans and our sea animals are dying. We have to stop the contamination!! They also said that foundations are taking the bags to examinate them. They are trying to find a way to help this animals.

Hello mis Florence:
The video sais that:

The video sais that the plancton is desapearing because of the amout of plastic in the Pacific Ocean, the plastic converted into a whilpool and lots of sea gulls and lots of fish eat the traped planctong in the plastic, they eat that plancton that is proably infected an they start dying.
Lots of people in Foundations had taken out some peaces of plastic and started studying it. This people are doing a great example for the polution in the world, I think they whant to save the animals to.

Hi miss florence
dolphins eat fish and fish eat plancton.plancton is infected because of the plastic and that afects the food chain.
Many species like birds are daying because when they see the plastic they think that is food but actually is plastic and like that they dye.
In the pacific Ocean there is a 100 kilometers whirlpool.
Invastigator tested water from the ocean and there is no plastic free zone in the water tested.
The ocean is filling up with trash more and more each time.
In every 6 pounds of plastic their is 1 pound of plancton.
The chunks of plastic (like shampoo bottles, electric cables etc)break or seperate in small parts and like that is how birds and diferent tipes of animals van eat this and dye.

Hello Miss Florence this is what i learnt:
Zoo Plantons share the surface water with increasing numbers of plastic particles
Fish and birds are now consuming plastic
The plastic breaks into small pieces until it is injusted or deposited in a distant shore
A captain is conducting experiments to better understand thethread
For every 6 pounds of plastic you have 1 pound of planton.
Now there is six times more of plastic which means more planton
No place of the Pacific is free of this plastic pollution
Nurdle is a plastic raw material
Many fish and birds are found in the surface of the water and they are dead
The sea is getting sick with nurdles and synthetic particles

Hi Miss Florence

This is increadibly BAD, this really shocked me with every single deatail.
I would do anything to save all sea animals but when I think about it we are only one grain of sand out of a Billion

What I understood from the video that left me Paralizied was that in the pacific Ocean there are 100 km of small plastic particles and the plastic is being eaten by the birds and fishes.

The plastic is left there in the ocean and is made smaller and smaller and is deposited in shore.

Captain Charles Moore who is a Marine Biologist is making experiments to find out more about this problem. He has been saling around the pacific and he has noticed that the amount of trash has been increasing, they are expirimenting things to find out the amount trash in the Ocean,they are finding out the mass of trash and plancton. They took samples of the water and compared the weight of the plastic and the plancton that was in the sample.

What I find increadible is that every place they took a sample from they would find this poulluted plastic floating around

PD:for every 6 pound of plastic that they got there was 1 pond of plancton

4)Virds are eating this plastic and because of this they are daing.
5)Fish eat plancton and there is more plastic than plancton, fish are knaw eating plastic.Because of this virds eat fish snd they die(some of them).
6)Lots and lots of beaches are knaw all cobered with plastic small balls.
7) A Foundation is studying the plastic by taking it out of the sea and watching it with telescopes, to see how to help the earth, that is so contaminated.

Hi miss florence
this is what I learned
1) There is plastic in the pacific ocean.
2) Dolfins eat fish and fish eat plastic instead of plancton because they are confused.
3) The scientist took samples to study in the lab. He found that there is six times more plastic than plancton.
4) Plastic is petroleum based, its not biodegradable and it brakes into small pieces.
5) All the region was examined and nothing was free of plastic powder.
6) The plastic pieces float and are also deposited on the shores.
7) The birds get confused, they eat the plastic and feed it to their chicks who die because they dont get nutrients.

3)EVERY ONE KILOMETER THERE IS PLASTIC POLUTION.
4)A FUNDATION IS SEARCHING AND INVESTIGATING ABOUT THIS PROBLEM AND ITS TRYING IT TO RESOLVE.

Hi miss Florence,
I'm impressed because their is a lot of plastic in the ocean, also as fishes and birds are eating all that plastic when they drink or eat something. What impressed me a lot was those peaces of plastic can be as little as sea plankton and they weight six times one sea plankton. I can't find any logical reason how that plastic arrived their and stays all together. Scientist are now investigating about this plastics.

2)Plastic is not biodegradable, so any plastic in the ocean remains there.
3)The ocean is filling up with trash.
4)When scientists analyzed the pacific ocean, they saw that for every 6 pounds of plastic there was 1 pound of plankton.
5)No place in the ocean is free of plastic.
6)Scientists saw that the adult albatroth gets the plastic and feeds the baby albatroths with it, so the baby doesn´t get any nutrients and dies.
7)PLastic resin pellets (nurdles) absorb and concentrate toxins up to a million times their level in sea water.
I learnt a lot!

4) There is trash on the beaches and there are boats that get some trash from the ocean to help recolect it.
5)Animals are loosing nutrients, they are dying
6)People are founding expeditions to find more DATA about this.
7)There is more plastic that plancton

The video says that on the Pacific Ocean, lovely dolphins live, eat fish, fish eat plancton, and plancton is disappearing because in the North Pacific Ocean there is like a 100-kilometer long plastic garbage whirlpool, in which sea gulls and fish eat the trapped plancton in the disaster of plastic garbage, and start dying.Poor animals!!!!

Hi miss Florence,
What this video talks about is that: In the Pacific Ocean there is a huge garbage and there are there are fish and animals living there, there is a lot of plastic in the ocean and the animals think that that is food so they eat it also the plastic contaminates a lot the ocean.
Stop contaminating the world AND RECYCLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi miss Florence,
What I understood about the video is:
That in the Pacific Ocean there are dolphins who eat fish and the fishes eat plancton but that plancton is dissapearing because in the Pacific Ocean there is like a very long plastic garbage island, where the plancton is trapped so some animals are starting to die because of that, such us fishes, dolphins beacause they eat fish and some others. I also learned that a group of people are studying this plastic with special microscopes to help that animals. So people have to start no to through garbage to the sea.

Hi Miss Florence,
I wrote 10 things instead of 7… Here are some of the facts I learnt by watching the video:
1. Fish which are eaten by dolphins eat minute creatures called Soplangton.
2. Fish and birds are now consuming plastic in adittion of plangton.
3. Any plastic near the ocean remains there, and then breaks in smaller pieces and is eaten by an animal or is deposited on some distant shore.
4. There is an increase of the amount of trash, and plastic on part of the beaches.
5. The ocean is filling up with trash!
6. For every six pounds of plastic there is only one pound of plangton.
7. There is six times more plastic than plangton.
8. No place is free of the plastic pollution.
9. When a adult bird gives food with plastic to a baby bird, the baby takes the risk of dying.
10. Scientist made a study and they counted around 27000 pieces of plastic.

hello miss Florence,
The video tells us that there are beautiful animals on the pacific ocean that have to bear all this 100 kilometer plastic garbage whirlpool on this gigantic ocean. Some fish even eat the garbage thinking it is food so they die,poor animals.
We,human,have to stop throwing garbage were are contaminating our own planet.We have to think about it and bring a solution to stop it.

Hi Miss Florence,
These video is amazing, I learned that:

1) The humans contaminate the Ocean.

2)The dolphins eat fishes and the fishes eat some plancotms and that molecules eat a little of the plastic so I all the animals have plastic in their body.

3)There is more plastic that plancton

4)No part of the Ocean is free form the plastic

5)The birds are looseing nutrients because of the plastic in their organs.

6)27 thousand is plastic in a sample of how many plastic is in the OCEAN.

7)The Ocean is like a zoo.

Hi miss Florence,
7 things I learnt were:
1. Dolphins eat fish and the fish they eat eat zoo plancton. If the plancton they eat is polluted the dolphin and the fish will have plastic in them. Birds also feed on the plastic.
2. The plastic thrown in the water does not degrade it just gets into smaller pieces until it is eaten or deposited on a beach.
3. There is a foundation that studies how much plastic there is in the ocean and what it can do.
4. Every six pounds of plastic there is one pound of plancton which means six times more plastic than plancton.
5. Some plastic pieces look like small food so the birds eat it.
6. Some other pieces of plastic look like fish eggs which birds also eat.
7. The Plastic resin Pellets absorb the toxins and then fish or birds might eat it.

Hi Miss Florence
1.Fishes and birds are now consuming all the plastic.
2.Since the plastic does not like "destroy" by it self it stays there in the ocean.
3.The plastic also sometimes goes to the shore.
4.People and cientist are now doing new experiments to understand more about the plastic in the oceans.
5.Each day there is more and more plastic in the oceans.
6.Practically every place in the Pacific has this small pieces of plastics, only in a few places there is no plastic.
7.Lots of birds are diying because of the plastic becase they swollow it without knowing what it is.

After I saw this video I was very shocked because I didn t knew this abput the Pacific.

Hello Miss Florence,
The sea is full of fishes that eat other fishes that eat planctom. Becaus of the contaminatioon, there is not a single place in the sea were there is not plastic. Every 6 pounds of plastic there is only 1 pound of planctom, that means that planctom is 1 sixth of plastic. A fundation, is studying this by taking different prooves (muestras) of sea and watching the amount of plastic and the amount of plastic and the amount of planctom they have.

Hi Miss Florence,
This is so sad! Poor animals!
This video tells us:
1-Many animals are in danger.
2- Fish in the Pacific are eating Zo Plankton which shares the waters with plastic.
3-Fish and birds are consuming plastic because plankton are mixed with the plastic.
4- Since plastic isn't biodegradable all the plastic that gets in stays there until it gets to shore.
5-Scientists are doing experiments to find out why there is so much garbage in the Pacific.
6-There is 7% more plastic particles in the ocean than plankton.
7-HUMANS ARE THE CAUSE OF THIS! ANIMALS ARE DIENG BECAUSE OF US AND WE NEED TO BE MORE CARFUL!

Hi mis Florence
This are the seven things I learned in the video:

1 The planctons share the surface water with increasing number of plastic.

2 These of the so planktons living with the plastic is a problem to fih and birds, are now consuming plastic in addishon to plankton.

3 Since petrolium plastics are not biodegradable and remain there, breking in smaller pieces. Before it is deposited on some distant shore, or it is injusted.

4 There is 6 times more plastic than plancton.

5 Somehow this plastic acumulates more in the center of the pacific ocean. But the alarming fact is tha we find the plastic polution every where.

6 Therefore you can find plastic particles in fish and birds. Becasue of the color, some plastic particles resemble the krill.

7- Plastic pearls float on water. They concentrate toxins such as PCB, DDE up to 1.000.000 times their level in ambient sea water.

Hello Miss Florence
The video starts with dolphins chasing fish to eat ,these fish need plancton to live.
Petroleum made garbage is polluting the oceans.
Fish and birds eat this plastic garbage.
Experiments are being made to understand the threat of this universal catastrophe.
The Pacific Ocean is increasing the amount of trash and debris.
There is six times more plastic garbage in the ocean than plancton .
All seas are polluted. The Central Pacific has the most waste.
Birds regurguitate pieces of plastic to their chicks causing their death.
The plastic pieces are so small that animals confuse it with food.
The video ends by saying that oceans are like a soup but instead of getting thicker with krill and plancton it is getting thicker with waste.

Hi Miss Florence!
The video talks about lots of sea creatures or sea gulls that live there and eat there and eat plancton, but it is growing scarce due to a 100 kilometre plastic garbage. The animals that eat the plancton are eating it from the garbage and getting sick and even dying! But a Fundation is starting to figure out how to clean that area and watch it with some sort of special telescopes to help the animals in danger.
Thanks for the info!

Hi miss Florence

1.There are kilometers and kilometers of plastic in the Pacific Ocean.
2.One of the big problems is the animal eating the plastic because it is very bad for its health.
3.The plastic is not degradable so it starts to get smaller and smaller and sometimes it goes to some shore or it gets injusted.
4.Some people are investigating (like Catrine Charles) how the plastic can it damage our World.
5.This investigator gets some examples of trash to do different experiments like looping at their weight and compare it with the weight of the plankton that of what I understand it is what fish eat.
6.Their is six more times trash than sub-plankton.
7.Plastic nurdles absorb toxins such as PCB AND DDE.

There is a foundation that is studing this plastic in the Pacific and they are very shocked with what they are seing. There is more plastic than zooplanton! The fish need to eat plancton, but plancton is desapeiring because of plastic. Many animals have been found dead because of eating plastic, they confuse the food with the plastic!!!
We must start looking out for our planet!!!
Many animals are dying because of our fault we must do something to save them!

3- Any plastic that is in the water remainds there

4- The ocean is filling up with trush.

5- If you compare the weight of plastic and of plancton, For ever 6 pounds of plastic it is 1 pound on plancton.

6- The alarming thing is that all the samples that they found were full of plastic.

7- Fish and birds cant see plancton , so they eat plastic enstad of plancton and the prim material of plastic that contains toxins are very simmilar to fish eggs so birds eat prim material of plastic estad of eating fish eggs and they die

Hello Miss Florence this video talks about "Plastic in the Pasific"
The fishes that eat nute polific creature called soplanton, this days so planton share the serfis water with increasing of plastic particles, this is a big problem because fishes and birds are not consuming plants as they don t consume plants they die .
They are doing a marine research foundation to take plastic away, when they found an animal in the water the animal was full of plastic and oviusly dead, they found plastica and trash.
They (people that work at the marine) try to find out the mass of all the plastic and the mass of all the trash that is in the waters in the pasific ocean for that they use a lot of aparators, in there S.E.A lab, Redondo Beach, CA they compare the weight of hte plastic particles that they acumulate throw all the way in the ocean.
No place is free of plastic, no one had realise at the affect on human disturaction of this plastic particles, fishes and birds.
In the coast there are large plastic fragnens, if water animals don t have food they could die.
They found 27000 pices of plastic, if we don t do something with the plasticin the pacific a lot of birds would be dead because they can t eat that fishes that are in the pasific water all contaminated by the plastic, plastic (nurdels) transport toxins in the ocean eviroment.
Plastic resin pellets(nurdels) abstract and consentrate toxins such as PCB and DDE up to 1000000 times their levels in ambimental sea.
As a conclucion we could say that there is plastic in the pasific, there are animals that are dieing thanks the plastic and if we don t do something the pasific would be full of plastic.

Hello miss Florence!!
The video is very interesant and I lerned some things like....
That the dolphins are in the surface of the pacific ocean, were they have their food that is fishes.
Every plastic of the ocean remains there contaminating and bracking in to lots of peases.
The captain of the oceans, who traveled from many remote areas of the pacific ocean. And he was inpresed of the amount of trash in lots of beaches.
The captain when to the S.E.A Laboratory and he compared the weight of the plastic trash he found in the oceans, of the six pounds he found one that was of ¨plancton¨.
He, the captain had/has a boat and he fishs with it!
There are fishis and animals living in that ocean.
The plastic of th ocean becomes smaller each time and contaminates more the ocean.

The seagulls or the fish eat the garbage cause they confuse it with plankton and they may die. Some boats recolect the garbge in the sea. The plastic turns smaller and contaminate the ocean. Animals are loosing nutrients.

Hello Miss Florence,
I've learned that plankton is the starting point of the food chain in sea animals. Therefore if there is pollution that is the same size as plankton, this is very risky for all of sea animals. Its incredible how many plastic is in the sea, in the video it says that there is six times more plastic than plankton, thats terrible!!!
Hopefully the foundation will help to find a solution for this big problem, allthough we all know we have to stop polluting the world.
