今天要分享的是来自贝乐英语北京中关村培训中心Moon小朋友的获奖作品：Protect the Ocean。
Protect the Ocean
No one can resist the beauty and wonder of the ocean: the comforting breeze, the playful waves, and the soft sand are all the things we crave.
Then, you dive in to a coral reef, and look around: passing sea turtles, colorful fish, and sea stars of different shapes and sizes.
But suddenly, you spot a plastic bag in the reef. You see fish and turtles dying.
As we all know, this blue paradise is in danger.
In the last few decades, as the human population skyrocketed, tons of waste and chemicals were thrown into the ocean, while the staggering amounts of fishing was and is still endangering many species.
At the same time, the glaciers are melting, rendering polar bears and penguins homeless, and eventually killing them.
Now, when this disaster has almost become indomitable, do we finally realize the severity of this crisis.
However, if you are willing, we still stand a chance.
In Baja California, Mexico, there was once a place where the fish population was completely decimated.
When nearly all the fish were gone, a brave family decided to take action.
They prohibited fishing in the community, and miraculously, 30 years later, in just one human generation, all the fish came back.
The ocean in their area is now diverse and beautiful. This is proof that the ocean has an extraordinary capacity to regenerate when it is protected.
As this example proves, we can save the ocean if we try.
However, this challenge would take all the nations on planet Earth to sacrifice their own strength.
And we, as individuals, would also need to participate in the battle against the death of the ocean.
We need to fish less, recycle our plastic products, and try to stop the warming of our planet.
If every one of us does that, we would reach our goal of saving the world of water we all love.
Let’s protect the oceans for the many future generations yet to come.
