IELTS Writing Task 1 essay on marine life

This graph portrays the population of three marine creatures: (whales, dolphins, and seals) from the years 2008 to 2016 by Gormez Strait.

  1. for graph = show, display, demonstrate (more preferable)
  2. between 2006 and 2018
  3. in the Gormez Straits

As it is evident, the dolphin population had an upswing growth over these 8 years. Moreover, it has the highest population in 2018 among the other two marine animals (whales and seals).

  1. upswing is a noun.
  2. 12 years (2006 to 2018)

The seal’s population growth situation is not quite like the dolphin’s population. In the years 2006 to 2010, the seal’s population had a regressive growth. Nevertheless, its population ascended in the following years.

  1. seals’ population vs. seal’s population
  2. dolphins’ (population can be omitted to avoid repetition)
  3. regressive growth = regressive step / direction / orientation

The whale’s population was moderately the same between these years. Fortunately, their numbers increased in the last years (from 2014 to 2018). In addition, whales had the lowest population in 2018.

  1. Whales’ population

Overall, the upward population statistics of these three marine animals (whales, dolphins, and seals) demonstrate that people and governments have taken the marine animal community and their life status more seriously. Consequently, their population ascended with better and conscientious protection.

  1. upward trend / rising population (without statistics)
  2. animal community = animal welfare
  3. living conditions / habitat
  4. the government (singular word with a plural verb)
  5. population grew / increased / rose / soared (common collocations for population)
