The popularization of the SDGs has raised awareness towards the issue of marine litter. However, I feel that this problem doesn’t feel real yet for those who don’t feel close to the ocean, as if it is a distant world event. I think many people are aware of the negative effects of litter, but if they come to learn how resilient juvenile fish can be, taking advantage of this problem to survive, they may realize the ocean’s preciousness and develop a desire to protect it of their own accord. I believe this could open the door to a new kind of ocean literacy education that all individuals can enjoy and be a part of.
