A lot of rubbish is thrown into the sea. Sea animals, fish and birds are in danger.
Oil from big ships, chemicals and waste pollute the sea and kill whales and dolphins, fish and sea birds.
Groups of people who care about the environment spend their free time clearing up litter from the beaches.
The Dead Sea is in danger
The Dead Sea is the saltiest body of water of the earth and a wonderful natural treasure
The Dead Sea is located at the lowest point of the earth, almost 400 metres below sea level.
It is 50 kilometres long. Just 40 years ago it was 80 kilometres in length.
90% of the waters that flow from the Jordan River, which goes into the Dead Sea, is taken for drinking and agriculture in Israel and Jordan.
Local industries use the water for getting necessary minerals.
The Dead Sea attracts hundreds of thousands of tourist every year.
The thick black mud that is found at the sea’s beach is very useful for people with skin diseases.
The Dead Sea can be saved – but time is running out!
