Visit of  Volunteers of Nadir Khan Kasi Educational & Development Society at Sea View Karachi to protect, save Marine Life and Pollution of Sea. For the purpose above the volunteers had distributed posters among the visitors who come to see and enjoy the beauty of beach. The main aim was to tell the visitors to maintain the natural beauty of Sea View and can not pollute the sea and beach to save the Marine life and environment.The NED Society told the participents that Ocean is downstream of everything, so all of our actions, no matter where we live, effect the ocean and the marine life it holds. Those who live right on the coastline will have the most direct impact on the ocean, but even if you live far inland, there are many things you can do that will help marine life. 

What is the problem? Plastic stays around for hundreds of years, can be a hazard to wildlife and leaches toxins into the environment.  The solution?  Stop using so much plastic. Buy things with less packaging, don't use disposable items and use reusable bags instead of plastic ones wherever possible.  

Trash in the environment can be hazardous to marine life, and people too! Help clean up a local beach, park or roadway and pick up that litter before it gets into the marine environment. Even trash hundreds of miles from the ocean can eventually float or blow into the ocean.  The International Coastal Cleanup is one way to get involved - that is a cleanup that occurs each September. You can also contact your local coastal zone management office or department of environmental protection to see if they organize any cleanups.


Never Release Balloons
Balloons may look pretty when you release them, but they are a danger to wildlife, who can swallow them accidentally, mistake them for food, or get tangled up in their strings. After your party, pop the balloons and throw them in the trash instead of releasing them.


Dispose of Fishing Line Responsibly
Monofilament fishing line takes about 600 years to degrade. If left in the ocean, it can provide an entangling web that threatens whales, pinnipeds and fish (including the fish people like to catch and eat). Never discard your fishing line into the water - dispose of it responsibly by recycling it if you can, or into the garbage.


Volunteer or Work With Marine Life
Maybe you work with marine life already, or are studying to become a marine biologist. Even if working with marine life isn't your career path, you can volunteer. If you live near the coast, volunteer opportunities may be easy to find. If not, you can volunteer on field expeditions such as those offered by Earthwatch as Debbie, our guide to insects, has done, where she learned about sea turtles, wetlands and giant clams!

Give a gift that will help marine life. Memberships and honorary donations to non-profit organizations that protect marine life can be a great gift. How about a basket of environmentally-friendly bath or cleaning products, or a gift certificate And when you wrap your gift - be creative and use something that can be re-used, like a beach towel, dish towel, basket or gift bag.

 Clean Beaches

We want to enjoy clean beaches when we go to recreate at the beach, whether it is so that the water is clean, or even if we just want to relax and soak up some sunshine. Who wants to sit on a dirty beach or worse get injured by stepping on a broken glass bottle?

2. Save Wildlife

Keep debris from killing wildlife. Marine animals can mistake trash for food and many have died from consuming plastic bags, fireworks debris, and cigarette butts.

3. Local Economy

Keep our beaches as an ideal tourist attraction to continue the stream of tourism revenue that supports our community.
