Animals' Perception of Plastic Waste
Overconsumption of items stored in plastic packaging is inevitable for the moment due to the fact that very slight per cent of the industries are actually concerned about the environment more than their profit. About 26 million tons of plastic is thrown in the ocean every year. Some of it degrades into small pieces and get washed away by The North Pacific Gyre a.k.a. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
Sadly, bigger in size plastic objects get consumed by marine animals of all type. Waste reduction is possible and is strongly required at the moments because if things continue that way, we’ll never see the world as it is at the moment – it’s face will be completely changed in several years due to the waste pollution. Many rubbish removal companies are concerned about effective waste clearance as this is one of the most successful ways to prevent further disasters caused to nature. See for yourself and reconsider the way you’ll threat your plastic rubbish the next time you hold one in your hands.
Entangled young seal
This net is primarily used by fishermen. Sadly, they don’t aways have control over it’s disposal as it may break while in water.
As you can see, the diver is probably investigating the net to find solution how to free the fish from it. (I hope it won’t eat him afterwards ).

It must have given up on it as it is too tough and huge for its mouth but who knows …
This one did it.
Apparently, this little plastic bite looks delicious to it, until it actually dies because of doing this mistake. High percent of the dead seabirds are found with stomachs filled with plastic waste.
Jellyfish is one of the most favorite food to the sea turtles. Unfortunately, plastic bags resemble jellyfish perfectly and overall sea turtled maybe consume more plastic than jellyfish. Or if not, that’s just temporary, if the plastic pollutions continue, it’ll become a real statistics.
