Oil Spill and Plastic

Oil Spill and plastic is a major threat for the marine ecosystem. Increase in sea traffic for trade, drilling, rigging and accidents lead to oil spills in water bodies. These can kill seabirds, mammals, shellfish and other organisms they coat. Plastic on other hand had caused a major threat to the marine ecosystem. All marine animals are now subjected to entanglement and suffocation due to indiscriminate use and disposal of plastic waste from different sources which are life threating.
