Shout out to @green_org_ for this information! Climate change and pollution are severely impacting the oceans, and if we don't do something about it, we could lose some of the most amazing creatures ever to swim in its waters.

But there is hope! Some awesome companies are working on technology that helps us see a brighter future for our oceans. Like Coral Reef Restoration and Ocean Clean-Up Initiatives! Here are just a few examples we found from @green_org_.
