Sea turtles and other marine creatures mistake plastics and other garbage as food (such as jellyfish) and ingest it. This mistake causes blockages within their digestive system, which leads to starvation and a long, painful death.
Over 100 million marine animals die each year due to marine debris, according to the Sea Turtle Conservancy. And more than half of the world’s sea turtles have ingested some plastic or human trash.
The Cornwall Wildlife Trust has said ‘Two particular dangers facing them in the South-West are entanglement in fishing gear and blockage of the gut by floating rubbish which they mistake for food.’
They continue to say, ‘We can all do something to help turtles if we think about the problems they face. For a start, we can take our plastic and other non-biodegradable rubbish home rather than leaving it on the beach or in the sea - and why not fill a bag with other people s rubbish at the same time?! A letter to your MP asking him or her to promote more wildlife-friendly fishing methods is another approach. Think about turtles when you take foreign holidays as well: many beaches on Cyprus and other Mediterranean islands, for instance, are used by turtles for nesting; if you patronise hotels or time-shares built too close to those beaches, you will add to the disturbance they suffer.’ #cornishlife #surf #beachclean #sustainableliving #sea #cornwallliving #oceanplastic #traveller #wave #cornwall #marinelife #waves #sealife #beach #surfer #sustainable #turtle #community #ocean #summer #environment #seaside #beautiful #lifestyle #england #cornish #savetheturtles #ecofriendly #travel #travelling
