What's the impact of plastic pollution on marine life?
Marine wildlife such as whales, sea birds, fishes and turtles, mistake plastic waste for prey, and most die of starvation as their stomachs are filled with plastic trash.
They also suffer from lacerations, infections, decreased ability to swim, and internal injuries.
NOT-SO-FUN-FACTS
- Scientists estimated that around 90% of all seabirds have ingested some amount of plastic
- UNESCO estimates that 100,000 marine mammals die because of plastic pollution each year
- In 2019, a young whale died with 88 pounds of plastic in its stomach
Let's all do our part and keep our oceans clean!
