1.1.3. rubbish float in the ocean

1.1.4. we can reduce the use of plastic

1.1.5. bring recyclable bags when buying stuff

1.2. Annette - Toxins in the food chain

1.2.1. When humans go to the beach, they usually leave rubbish which will be washed away into the ocean

1.2.2. If the fish eats plastic that contains toxins, and we eat the fish, the toxin will go to our body,so we end up harming our own body

It has an immense knock-on food chain effect across the ocean as whales are at the top of the food chain.

2.2.2. How to prevent whales going extinct Donate money to WWF The money provides the needs of whales You can protect threatened species and their habitats with a donation t

2.4. Tina -

2.4.1. global warming

2.5. Brandon - white tigers

2.5.1. human kill them for their skin

2.6. Andrea - Kiwi Birds

2.6.1. Logging Loss of biological diversity of birrds

2.6.2. Loss of habitat Human activities Housing Hunting of birds

2.6.3. Climate change Affect kiwi birds' eating habitats Experiencing drought If daylight comes along all of a sudden, it will dehydrate them and make them die Lack of water (Water is important for healthy digestion)

3. Air Pollution - the problem (1. why is this a problem to us? 2. What have humans do that have caused this problem? 3. What can we do to help?)

3.1. Edwin - Bad Air Quality

3.1.1. the pollution from cars and transports In Taiwan, serious and critical pollution came from cars and other transports makes the air becoming dark yellow in colour and leads to bad quality.

3.1.2. the burning of fossil fuels When burning fossil fuels, it produces a lot of carbon dioxide which will affect the atmosphere. The global warming will worsen soon and the weather will be hotter and hotter.

3.2. Bernice - Bad Air Quality

3.2.1. when people go to beaches, plastic left there will get washed into the ocean
