Marine Life in Danger – level 1

18-08-2022 15:00

There is a study. It is about marine animals. In the world, there are fewer and fewer marine animals. There are 50% less marine animals in the world than in 1970.

This is not good news. The situation is getting worse fast. This is a problem for animals. This is a problem for people, too. Many people need the ocean. They need it to make money.

Why is this happening? The water is getting warmer. The climate is changing. Also, people fish too much.

Difficult words: study (a text written by scientists about something), marine (the sea), climate (the typical weather of an area).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
