There are many forms of pollutions contributed by human activities over the years.


Examples include air, water and coastal pollution.

  • Air Pollution
    Consists of harmful chemical substance that had been released into the air by factories and other human activities. It's known to contribute to acid rain, depletion of the ozone layer and global warming.
  • Water Pollution
    This could lead to many water-bourne diseases in undeveloped countries, also causing a depletion in our seafood supplies.
  • Coastal Pollution
    Known as ocean pollution as most of it waste sources comes from land and coastal regions. Fishes who live the area could not survive as most of pesticides from farms are wash up in the river to the ocean itself.

Do keep in mind that these are just three of the many examples of pollutions that human activities have contributed to.
