He saw that the teenager was actually picking up the starfish that was being washed ashore by the tide the night before and threw them back into the ocean. He then asked the teenager what he was doing. The teenagers replied that he was trying to save the starfish by throwing them back to the sea. The man told the teenager “It won’t help and does not matter as there are too many of them, how many can you help?"
