Make a difference...
Did you know 10 million tonnes of plastic waste is dumped into our oceans and waterways each year? That's 1 rubbish truck per minute!
Over time plastic breaks down into small pellets. These pellets look exactly like fish eggs, the favourite food of turtles and fish. Plastics permanently fill the stomachs of aquatic life, leaving no room for real food. This eventually causes the creature to die of starvation.
We can all play our part to reduce our consumption of plastic, remove it from our waterways and protect our unique aquatic life.
