  A new report says plastics are responsible for $13 billion in damage to the oceans and the undersea environment. The findings were announced recently at a United Nations conference in Nairobi, Kenya. The report tells about harm to sea life -- and what might be done to improve the situation.
  一项新的报告称塑料应为130亿美元的海洋和海底环境的破坏负责。这项发现发布于近期在肯尼亚内罗毕举行的联合国记者会上发布。这份报告阐述了塑料对于海洋生物的危害以及改善海洋环境的措施。

 

  Plastic thrown away carelessly makes its way into rivers and other waterways. The plastic eventually reaches coastal areas and ocean waters. After a while, it collects in the sea. And plastic never goes away.
  随意丢弃的塑料可能被扔进河里,或者是其他水道,最终会到海岸线地区流入海中。没过多久塑料就会在海水里聚集,永远离不开海洋。

 

  Nancy Wallace heads the Marine Debris Program at NOAA, America's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. She says plastic is not biodegradable – destroyed by bacteria or natural processes. Instead, it just breaks up into smaller pieces over time.
  南希•华莱士是美国国家海洋大气管理局海洋废弃物项目的负责人。她说,塑料是不可生物降解的,也就是说塑料不能通过生物或是自然的方法被完全降解。反之,随着时间的推移塑料只会变成更小的碎片。

 

  Nancy Wallace says the oceans contain a lot of chemicals and other pollutants. She notes that chemicals like DDT are illegal now. But she says the remains of such products may find their way to plastics floating in seawater. Then, fish may eat the plastics.
  南希•华莱士表示海洋包含了大量的化学物质和其他的污染物。她提到,像是DDT这样的化学药品现在已经是禁止使用了。但是,她说,你可以在漂浮于海水中的塑料上发现DDT的残留物。然后,鱼儿有可能会吃了塑料。
