Man is the only living creature that is created is think and dominate over other living beings on the planet. Man can do anything right from hunting a bird or an animal to slaughtering it for his own table purpose and this is because the so-called other living beings cannot protest against the mass killings.
Apart from these killings, he is also polluting the environment by making the planet a complete mess despite barring little positives. He has turned Oceans from bad to worse. Due to human’s big blunder of expelling plastics and waste into the ocean, the entire marine system is now in danger.
Shockingly, there are over 5 trillion pieces of plastic that are floating under the surface, slowly wiping out marine life. In order to react quickly before it’s too late, an Indian student by the name of Sainath Manikandan in Abu Dhabi has developed robots to help protect marine life.

The 11-year-old Sainath Manikandan, a brilliant student at the GEMS United Indian School, built the Marine Robot Cleaner (MBot Cleaner) and Agriculture Robot (Agribot) and said he believes that higher officials would wholeheartedly accept and execute his inventions.
“MBot is a prototype robot that can remove floating wastes from surface water. It is basically shaped like a boat and can be operated remotely with radio control. It runs with two motors that help the boat move in the water,” PTI quotes Manikandan as saying.
Marine Robot Cleaner is a revolutionary invention by this little boy which helps preserve the marine environment, AgriBot, as the name hints, is an ‘agriculture robot’ that will work towards cutting down the labour of farmers who struggle to work in countries under extremely high temperatures.
“Recycling just one tonne of paper can save 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 380 gallons of oil, 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space and 4,000 kilowatts of energy,” he says.
Sainath Manikandan is also deeply engaged with several eco-friendly programmes. In fact, he is the ambassador of Drop It Youth, Tunza Eco Generation, and an active member of the Emirates Environmental Group, the report adds.
“I have launched my own campaign, PEPC campaign, through which I collect paper, electronic wastes, plastics and cans for recycling,” he said.
“We live on a blue planet, with oceans and seas covering more than 70 per cent of the earth’s surface. Oceans feed us, regulate our climate, and generate most of the oxygen we breathe,” said Manikandan.
“Recycling helps the environment in many ways, as it preserves our resources, saves the landfill space, reduces greenhouse gases and saves water and energy,” Manikandan added.
