Plastic constitutes approximately 90 percent of all trash floating on the ocean’s surface!!
Some of the plastic washes up on the shore but most of it floats in the ocean. One million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans.
Seabirds are moving towards extinction because of the amount of plastic they consume every day. They depend on the oceans around them for food yet those oceans are packed with trash’ especially plastic. These birds think the pieces of trash attractive and they consume them.
People don't realize that every piece of plastic they throw away stays on earth. Plastic fishing nets especially are very harmful because they float in the ocean. Three hundred thousand dolphins and porpoises die each year as a result of becoming entangled in discarded fishing nets.
Plastic can be lethal to the turtles who ingest it – the debris can block their stomachs and starve them, or it can puncture their intestinal systems. Plastic can also release toxins when ingested. The likelihood of a green turtle ingesting man-made trash jumped from about 30% to nearly 50% in 2012.
