The future ocean in 50 years will be bigger and much warmer. Thus meaning less animals will live in it. Animals from the equator will come up coast because it’ll be warmer. Animals that live in cold water will have no place to go, so they will die.

What will the global ocean look like in 50 years?
As part of the Spring 2020 issue of our flagship magazine Oceanus themed Future Ocean [link to issue], we asked fifth-grade students from Morse Pond School in Falmouth, Mass. to share their vision, both in writing and through art. Many responses were disheartening: no corals, dead animals, rising and polluted seas, endless plastics. Others held glimpses of hope—if we make sustaining the ocean a priority.
The future ocean is different, but not in a good way. People rarely travel to the beach anymore, except the scientists who come once a year to test the ocean to see how much more we have until our oceans are more oil and pollution than fish and water. But the dark ages are changing for good. The protests on the government are multiplying by hundreds of people per day. Even though our oceans are dying we are healing them by uniting with each other to save our ecosystem.
The future ocean in 50 years will be bigger and much warmer. Thus meaning less animals will live in it. Animals from the equator will come up coast because it'll be warmer. Animals that live in cold water will have no place to go, so they will die.
The future ocean has no chance, we have ruined it too much, it's not something we could fix. Life in the ocean would be dead (almost). It would be filled with oil, microplastics, and plastic. We have ruined our chances at surviving. People from past generations have ruined future generations. There is no turning back, and the worst part is this is all our fault.
The future ocean will be very filled with the sand that the shore swifted up into it. The ocean will probably be polluted with a lot of plastic or paper. Much of the coral will be gone because the more we go boating, the more the coral gets killed. Also, the more you go diving, the coral also gets killed.
The future ocean will be more explored and a lot less fish. There will be a lot of plastic and trash in the water.
The future ocean will rise and be larger and we'll have more water and less land on Earth and there will be less animals in the oceans and less coral reefs.
The future ocean will be higher because of erosion. Most of the animals will be dead because of global warming because most animals in the ocean can't survive in warm water.
The future ocean will cover more of Earth's surface. The ocean will be warmed and other fish that like the cold will die. Some animals will probably become extinct because the plastic waste.
The future ocean is larger, land is smaller, and a thin layer of microplastics cover the top of the water. Some areas buzzing with underwater vehicles.
The future ocean will be covered in plastic in 50 years. There will be less animals. Climate change there will be more animals migrating from the south and if there more plastic and more animals will die.
The future ocean might get more polluted and the animals in the oceans population is going to go down.
The future ocean is dry and there is not a lot of water left because the water is getting sucked into the ground.
The future ocean is going to look bigger and there is going to have much more animals and life in it. It is going to be bigger because the arctic is melting caused by global warming.
The future will look polluted and it will be filled with plastic and oil. My other prediction is the world will end or the ocean will stay the same but we will not throw plastic into the ocean.
The future ocean will be just plastic or trash and half of the animals will die out. The rest will probably die from bacteria.
The future ocean will be much larger than the one today. The ocean will also be warmer in 2070 because of climate change. The ocean can barely survive in warmer water.
The future ocean is going to be bigger because the arctic is melting. It also might have new animals and the sand on the beach is going to get smaller and smaller. There is going to be not that much of trash in the ocean.
The future ocean will look like plastic because people just throw plastic in the sand and it flows into the ocean and a lot of fish will die and we will have no more fish and the sharks will die and a lot of bad things may happen.
