I think that we do need to focus on saving our ocean as well as the land. Most people are talking like, "save the trees" and "recycle." I'm not degrading saving the land, of course those are important too, but we also need to consider saving the plants and animals in our oceans. They are just as vital as our land!

I think it’s amazing how we need the ocean to do basic living requirements such as breathing. I have been to many coral reefs such as John Penne kamp coral reef state park where I have seen the reefs deteriorate through the years. I don’t think it’s necessarily bad that we go and look at the reefs but I do think it’s a problem when people touch and put harming substances into the water. These reefs can be saved if we just respect them. -Miranda Delaney
