5.2.1. As the number of beachgoers has been growing, so has the use of sun protection products. Many people are unaware but 14,000 tonnes of toxic sunscreen make their way to the underwater world each year. In fact, as many as 82,000 kinds of chemicals from personal care products end up in the oceans. The use of chemical sunscreen, water pollution, coral diseases, rising sea temperatures and ocean acidification, lead to deformations in juvenile corals, bleaching of reefs and prevent corals from growing, reproducing and surviving. In 2018, Hawaii, Mexico and Aruba announced a ban on non-biodegradable sunscreen lotions.

Hotels could sponsor campaigns raising awareness about the fragility of the oceans and foster initiatives informing travellers about marine life and species such as dolphins, whales and coral reefs. In addition, civil society coalitions could form to promote sustainable practices in seaside areas.

7. I began by searching for the sources of marine pollution. Cruise ships, aiplanes and sunscreen seem to be important. Doing my research, I discovered that to protection of marine life is not only an stake, it is also an enconic opportunity. Many tourism operators have already started creating ecotourism sites, which are economically and ecologically very interesting.
