Plastic Ocean
(2012-06-02)
(wqcs) - Plastic is made from oil, at it never degrades completely in the environment. Marine animals such as dolphins, seaturtles and seabirds eat plastic by mistake and die from starvation. Plastic in the ocean is broken down in tiny pieces, so plankton and baby fish eat it, big fish eat the small fish, and then, you end up with a plastic fish on your menu. What can you do? Reduce or eliminate your plastic use. Reuse plastic items. Recycle and dispose of plastic properly. And if you go for a beach walk, pick up plastic along the way. At Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA) we have developed new state-of-the-art technologies to make water pollution visible. To learn more visit teamorca.org © Copyright 2017, wqcs
