Sea Day: how ocean is saved abroad and what Ukraine can do

The sponge, collecting oil, cleaning robots at the bottom of the seas, and the "eighth continent." How humanity saves the ocean and how each of us can help.

We really want to spend the sea day on the seashore, or even by the ocean, and don't want to think about any problems. It has been proven that even one day on the coast can recharge the "internal batteries" for the week ahead. The annual Medical Health Survey in the UK found that people living within 1 km of the ocean have better mental health than those living 50 km from the coastline. Moreover, they even feel more prosperous, socially significant, and self-confident.

But unfortunately, it is our planet's seas and oceans that have perhaps the greatest number of problems. The human who is supported and treated by the sea kills it.

We explain what is wrong with the World Ocean and what solutions are already being used around the world to save it.
