As individuals and families, what can we do to protect God's oceans?
Eat fish that comes from sustainable fisheries
Agricultural runoff into streams (and subsequently into oceans) is a major source of water pollution. Consider buying local organic food that is sustainably grown and does not put pressure on threatened species or habitats.
Do not pollute--recycle used oil--and do not litter (plastic bags and six-pack rings easily end up in oceans, where they suffocate and entangle fish, sea turtles, birds, and other creatures).
Reconsider taking a cruise. Cruise ships dump tons of waste directly into the open oceans, where there are no national laws prohibiting the practice.
Plant trees, and encourage tree plantings in your community, especially near streams. Nurture and care for the trees.
Pray and act for the conservation of the earth's oceans and have faith that God will answer your prayers and honor your faithfulness to his will.
Tell your elected officials that you want government policies that support clean waters and ocean health.
