Every webpage is informative, whether its statistics, their presence in the news, or the several ways on how you can be involved. But it does not really stand out or differ from other charitable organizations. The website also doesn’t provide statements from families whom they’ve helped. Donors want to see that they’ve made a difference in someone’s life. A “thank you” video clip or photo of an assisted family or school group would probably have satisfied this issue and made this organization more desirable to participate in. It provides enough evidence for credibility from their existence in the news and links to their financial statements. It seems like a legit charitable organization with a good purpose but they also provide similar ethos as displayed in other websites, which in effect doesn’t necessarily derive an appeal to join this particular organization.
Throughout many decades there has been a huge environmental problem, not only putting marine life at risk but also human health. Ocean pollution is a big threat to the habitat and still today we haven’t stopped throwing trash, chemicals or toxins into the oceans. During the 1940’s, a technical service of the Army dumped a lot of chemical warfare into the sea, believing the type of gas will dissolve in the water becoming harmless in minutes. At that time, fishermen were able to catch a lot of fish, it wasn’t until they were out of luck and all they could see were dead fish floating on the surface. Many people think that oil spills and trash are the only types of ocean pollution, but they’re also forgetting about chemical, bacterial and thermal pollution. Polluted seas can be the cause of many diseases or infections, especially if people don’t take big measures like telling their kids not to “accidentally” drink water from rivers or lakes when swimming. Marine animals are a big part of our food chain if they carry diseases or toxins we’re also in big danger. Today, there have been many people who have been trying to stop others from polluting the oceans, but they still haven’t been able to convince the whole world to end ocean pollution. The government, instead of wasting money on unnecessary things like building walls or building more towers and creating more trash they should build trash contractors that will help with the trash floating around in the seas. There are
The website from the moment you open it does a great job of showing what the mission of the foundation is giving the reader a clear understanding. The way the use big white bold letters for their message and for the slideshow of different animals they protect, it indicates to the reader that what they are reading is important in a subconscious way. The way their slideshow shows images of the animals in a charming matter
The oceans need to be protected because it is where life began and if not taken care of, life as we know it will end. The well-being of the ocean is constantly being threatened and needs to stop. When dangerous substances go into the ocean, ecosystems suffer and become endangered along with the lives of people and marine life. The importance of protecting and preserving the quality and biodiversity of the world 's coasts must be recognized because they are truly irreplaceable. If humans are not educated , and become careless about what is thrown on the ground or sprayed on lawns, disastrous effects follow when it comes to the condition of the ocean’s ecosystems, which can endanger life itself, leading to a problem only we can correct. There is historical evidence of ocean pollution, although the problem still shadows us today.
The ocean doesn’t belong to us, we don’t sleep, live or eat in the ocean, so why should we take the ocean away from these innocent sharks? According to ‘The Sydney Morning Hearld’, The statistics have said that 83% of Australians havent changed how often they visit the beach or their activies and 82% believe that we should enter the water at our on risk. We as humans don’t need to be in the ocean, the ocean is a luxury that can be used at our risk. Do we need to put out signs on the beachs saying ‘Sharks can be here, Enter at your own risk’? Only eighteen percent
Ocean pollution is such a broad topic, and one that has many facets to it. As a group, we found it to be a very intriguing topic that it relevant to our everyday lives. As New Jersey residents, we have all spent time at the Jersey shore. We have all enjoyed the small and big beach towns, the sand, and of course
The Relay for Life website as well as the various Virginia Tech social media websites do a very good job of grasping the user’s attention when they first visit a website, with relevant photos and infographics. They also have a strong thematic unity by using a white background with the purple font on their websites. As far as containing well-presented information to create interest, they did a fairly good job but there is still some room for improvement. The banner on the Facebook page draws attention, but upon further analysis, it looks cluttered and does not clearly state the message that they are trying to convey on its own. They would also benefit from having more continuity of some of their messages across their platforms so that everyone receives the same information no matter where they look. In other areas, the details of when and where the event will take place, as well as how to get involved and donate to the cause were very clear. Nationally and around the Virginia Tech Campus, Relay for Life is a recognizable name and many are familiar with the cause. For those who are not their many outlets do an excellent job of describing why there is a need for this event and all that good that comes because of all the donations. It is also very easy to make donations, the links to make donations can often be found in bold on the websites so that it is simple for anyone to find out to donate. They also provided a detailed video walkthrough of the donation process for any confused visitors. Relay for Life overall does a good job of attracting attention, creating interest, stimulating desire, and promoting action leading to a successful marketing
Marine pollution is not a new phenomenon, but our acknowledgement of its impacts and severity is relatively new, with the first laws and discussions to counter it only appearing in the 1950’s. For much of history, it was thought that the oceans were so large that any pollution created would be negligible and easily diluted (Marine Pollution). Since, countless research and laws have been implemented in order to preserve our marine ecosystems because of how crucial these ecosystems are to humanity.
Polluting the ocean pollutes, the air, food and water quality. Plastic, fuel, detergent, oil, they are all toxins, that are being released into the air all the time. We need to get a grip on the amount of recycling and cleaning up that has to be done starting, now. Future generations are counting on us. Here is the beginning of a brand new innovative idea that was created to make the ocean a better and safer place.
Preserving coastlines is important for the economy and the environment. The fact that the business world and the preservation world are on the same page is a good indicator that maintaining beaches are important for both people and animals. The data that has been collected by both parties, thus far will hopefully bring a more cost effective and more long term solution for beach replenishment. So the beach bums and the sea life may continue to enjoy one of the most beloved landscape for generations to
In the book Sustainability, by Christina R. Weisser, the story Let My People Go Surfing by Yvon Chouinard explains the purpose of his company, and how his goal was to save the world, one fleece jacket at a go. Being a climber, surfer, an entrepreneur, an environmentalist and a known philanthropist, he certainly stands out as one of the few business men who attained success based on his own terms of creating a business. Chouinard never set out to become a businessman. He simply wanted to make the world a better place. The material I am covering is evidence that leads up to my point that people should notice when something needs to be done or changed.
State Cup is always an exciting element of the season and the culmination of seasonal play. Lancaster has always been bittersweet for me as I have spent more time here than I care to remember. Why you might ask? Well, depending on the year the weather can be cool and calm, or windy, rainy and freezing. I guess it is like Forrest Gump said about a box of chocolates: “You never know what you are going to get”. This year was promising as we have been experiencing warmer than normal temperature. I for one looked at the weather app on my phone on a daily basis to find out what nature had store for us this morning.
Transition Statement: The Surfrider Foundation has worked very hard to substantially improve our ocean environment.
The oceans face many types of pollution every day, every second. The ocean is our greatest ecosystem and out most valuable resource. A common misconception is that the rainforests are the lungs of the planet however, the majority of our oxygen is made via the algae in the sea. The oceans feeds, hydrates, and provides us with oxygen; ironically enough, despite its monetary value to mankind, it is what is treated the worst. For ages we have been dumping our trash, chemicals, and waste into the oceans with no fear or regret, almost an “out of sight- out of mind” mentality. People once and still assume that the oceans are so vast that all of the pollution is diluted and would be dispersed through out, going unnoticed. However, dilution is a myth and an idea that renders ocean dumping to be less impactful. Even so much of the man made pollution is becoming even more concentrated and have entered our natural food chain. However vast the waters of the ocean are, they are not meant to house all of these external factors. There are many alternatives to marine pollution including recycling, finding alternative trash dump sites, cutting down on harmful chemicals for agriculture, and most importantly having the ability to recognize when a problem is developing and counter act, immediately.
The place where I feel most comfortable is a place where I am calm. A place that is peaceful in its own ways. It is the place to go to get away from all my troubles. It is the one place where I could sit forever, and never get tired of just staring into the deepest blue I have ever seen. It is the place where I can sit and think the best. A place where nothing matters but what is in that little moment. The one place capable of sending my senses into an overload. This place is the ocean.
