Words in the News (12th August 2015): Underwater clean-up

For vocabulary and exercises: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/features/witn/ep-150812

Transcript

It's no ordinary day at the beach. These divers are in Cornwall, southwest England, not for the fun but to pick up rubbish.

An estimated 70% of the plastic which enters the sea sinks, according to the organisation Dive Against Debris. And much of it is not biodegradable.

This is a problem that stretches far beyond the UK. Eight million tonnes of plastic ends up in the world's oceans every year, causing damage to this fragile ecosystem.


Vocabulary

divers
people who swim underwater as a sport or for work

sinks
goes down below the water level

biodegradable
describes something that decays naturally

stretches
extends its reach further

ecosystem
all the living things in a particular area
