Recently a whale was found on a beach in Thailand. Starved.
It is also happening to turtles and dolphins, all sea creatures. It is happening in Australia....
Covered in silt and tangled among rocks, a single-use plastic bag found on Queensland's Sunshine Coast could be up to 40 years old, and the find is just the tip of the rubbish iceberg.
What can you do?
Say no to single-use plastics including balloons, minimise the use of other plastics, recycle, prevent plastic from making its way to the sea by managing it responsibly and donate to organisations that are committed to addressing this problem such as the Australian Marine Conservation Society www.marineconservation.org.au
