Oceanic Impacts: Habitat Destruction
The Problem
Habitat destruction in marine is where the marine ecological setup or environment is
unable to support life because of degradation (Lutgens, Tarbuck & Tasa, 2017). The problem
occurs when the conditions necessary for the survival of aquatic plants and animals are
eliminated or compromised. Majority of the oceans on the planet are experiencing habitat
destruction. However, the coastal regions nearing human population habitats, have suffered
disproportionately owing to human-made stresses. The habitat destruction affects the cycle of the
oceans' ecosystem, and hence, the entire biodiversity. The critical areas including swamps,
marshes, wetlands, and estuaries act as nurseries or bleeding zones for nearly all marine creatures.
Habitat destruction leads to loss of biodiversity.
Human contribution to habitat destruction
Many human activities are responsible for alterations of aquatic ecological conditions
which in turn leads to habitat loss or alteration in the world's oceans.
Water pollution
Water pollution is among the leading causes of habitat loss as it intoxicates natural
marine habitat. Deposition of plastic bags and tins in oceans has contributed significantly to the
decline of plants and animals in oceans. A study shows that plastic bags that are either directly
deposited in oceans or indirectly find their way into marine shoes account for 80 percent of
Pacific Ocean's debris (Mclendon, 2018). This includes plastic bottles, bags, and other consumer
items. This debris affects aquatic life in ways. First, some animals such as turtles feed on these
harmful plastic bags. Second, these items contain toxic chemicals unfit for marine life.
