Gray whale dies bringing us a message — with stomach full of plastic trash

1

Whales are dying everyday because they eat to much trash. “In March of last year, a 10 meter long sperm whale washed up on Spain’s South Coast. This whale had swallowed 59 different plastic items totaling over 37 pounds. Most of this plastic consisted of transparent sheeting used to build greenhouses in Almeria and Grenada for the purpose of tomatoes for the European market. The rest was plastic bags, nine meters of rope, two stretches of hosepipe, two small flower pots, and a plastic spray canister. Cause of death was intestinal blockage.” “Whales are not the only victims to our trash. It is estimated that over one million birds and 100,000 marine mammals die each year from plastic debris.” “For some whales, theplastic does not kill the animal directly, but cause malnutrition and disease, which leads to unnecessary suffering until death.” It is so sad.
