Can you find the right way through the plastic waste for the dolphin mother? (click on the picture)
There are currently 5 trillion pieces of plastic waste in the world's oceans. Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic enters the ocean. This equates to a garbage truck full of plastic being dumped into the ocean every minute. Fish of all sizes are eating plastic, which accumulates up the food chain to humans, he added. Globally, 100,000 marine mammals die every year as a result of plastic pollution. This includes whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and sea lions.The animals often die "slow, painful deaths," often of starvation, because their stomachs are full of plastic that never digests. Approximately 1 million sea birds also die from plastic.
Each of us is capable of changing something, as our daily decisions leave traces on the environment.
