Things You Can Do At Home


Things You Can Do At Home to Actively Help the Ocean and Marine Mammals

marine mammal center, Califorina coastline

  1. Reduce the toxins you use on your lawn and garden because these end up in our waterways.
  2. Bring your own reusable canvas or cotton shopping bag to carry your purchases. You can also reuse paper or plastic bags to help reduce trash.
  3. Dispose of fishing lines and lures properly, as animals can mistake them for food or become entangled in them.
  4. Avoid releasing balloons into the sky as they often end up in bodies of water and can trap animals and will break down into tiny bits of trash that can be consumed by fish.
  5. If purchasing beverages attached with "six pack" plastic rings, cut the rings apart before throwing them away. Birds, fish and small land animals can get caught in the rings.
  6. Carry your own reuseable bottle or coffee mug.
  7. Take excess packaging, like "peanuts" and bubble wrap, to your local shipping store.
  8. Tell a friend about one of these tips!
  9. Volunteer at The Marine Mammal Center.
  10. Learn "100 Ways to Make a Difference" compiled by MarineBio.
