Red tide in Chile – level 1
This news is from southern Chile. Something bad happens there. The seawater turns red. People call this “red tide”. It makes the seafood toxic.
People are not sure why this happens. It can be El Nino. Some people say that it is because of salmon farming. The government says that this is not the reason.
Fishing is very important in southern Chile. The fishermen there are in trouble. They protest. They ask the government for help.
Difficult words: toxic (something toxic can make you sick or kill you), government (the leaders of a country), reason (why something happens).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
