#DidYouKnow that plastic in the ocean never truly disappears? It just breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces. And no matter what size the plastic is, it can do tremendous harm to the animals and life forms in the ocean. You can help by disposing of litter properly, reducing your use of single-use plastics, and recycling waste whenever possible.

At the Seattle Aquarium, we are working with scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (NOAA PMEL) to measure ocean acidification in the waters of #PugetSound. Without action, the impacts seen in Puget Sound will soon be felt throughout the entire ocean. Moving to renewable energy sources on a large scale will decrease the amount of CO2 absorbed by the ocean, slowing the acidification process and its impact on all marine life.
