See How It Feels to Be an Ocean Animal Stuck in a Plastic Bag | National Geographic
Imagine being trapped inside a huge plastic bag. Each year, more than a million marine creatures and other birds and animals die from plastic trash. In the week leading up to World Oceans Day 2016, National Geographic took to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., with a plastic bag large enough to bring this issue to life at a human scale. This dramatization featuring National Geographic video staff simulates the experience of marine creatures that become trapped in plastic and can't escape. The plastic bag, created by art collective Red Dirt Studio, will be recycled through D.C.'s Office of Recycling.

Sea Turtle with Straw up its Nostril - "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS
This is the original video! Filmed by Christine Figgener, marine biologist at Texas A&M University. ***WARNING: Graphic Content & Inappropiate/ Strong Language!*** This video shows graphically why plastic waste is detrimental to marine life, especially single-use plastics (such as straws, which are one of the most redundant items). This turtle suffers from an item that is human-made and used by most of us frequently. The research team around Christine Figgener (Texas A&M University) found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril and they removed it. SAY "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS, AND ANY KIND OF ONE-TIME USE PLASTIC ITEMS! If you would like to support our research and conservation efforts in Costa Rica, please think about donating to our GoFundMe Campaign http://gofundme.com/wuhvd6zj UPDATES The Plastic Pollution Coalition just launched their "No Straw" Campaign in collaboration with us. Take the No-Straw-Pledge and learn more: http://www.plasticpollutioncoalition.... ----- The Story behind the viral video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLN52... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MPHb... OUR STORY: My research team found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril. After initially thinking that we are looking at a parasitic worm, and trying to remove it to identify it, we cut a small piece off to investigate further and finally identified what we were REALLY looking at. After a short debate about what we should do we removed it with the plier of a swiss army knife which was the only tool available on our small boat (not intended for overnight stays), since we were on the ocean, in a developing country, a few hours away from the coast and several hours away from any vet (probably days from any vet specialised in reptiles, not to mention sea turtles) and x-ray machines. Plus, we would have incurred a penalty (up to time in jail) on ourselves by removing the turtle since that is beyond our research permits. He did very obviously not enjoy the procedure very much, but we hope that he is now able to breath more freely. The blood from the shoulder is from a 6mm skin biopsy we took previously to this event for a genetic study (part of our permitted research), which usually doesn't bleed much, but which started bleeding while restraining the turtle. We disinfected the air passageway with iodine and kept the turtle for observation before releasing him back into the wild. The bleeding stopped pretty much immediately after the removal of the straw, and when we released him, he swam happily away. The turtle very likely swallowed the straw while ingesting other food items and then either expelled the straw together with the redundant sea water through her nostrils, or regurgitated the straw and it ended up in the wrong passageway. The nasal cavity of sea turtles is connected directly to the palate (roof of the mouth) by a long nasopharyngeal duct.

15 Horrific Suffering to Animal Cause Our Plastic Waste
The use of plastic for various purposes is very masive throughout the world. And it turns out to have a bad impact on the environment. Among the worst impacts were not suffered by humans as a plastic user, but by animals, especially living in the ocean. Like this the suffering of the animals are caused by human activities that can not manage plastic waste properly. Credit : https://soundcloud.com/spacewolfmusic

Plastic Oceans | What is the impact of polution in the sea?
Oceans are silently choking on our plastic waste. Plastic and synthetic materials are the most common types of debris in our oceans and are having horrific impacts on marine wildlife and systems. As an island continent "girt by sea" marine debris is of particular importance for Australia. Creatures get entangled in plastics and drown and ingested concentrated toxins from plastics pose a threat to the health of the food chain. Plastics also transport and introduce species into new environments. Anja Taylor catches up with the CSIRO research team spearheading the Marine Debris Survey, a world first study of the plastics around our coastline.

Sea Lions Cut Free from Garbage
The Vancouver Aquarium's veterinarian, Dr. Martin Haulena, aims his gun at a California sea lion. But instead of bullets, it's loaded with tranquilizer darts. Dr. Haulena, along with the Aquarium's veterinary team and marine mammal consulting biologist Wendy Szaniszlo, spent a day on the west coast of Vancouver Island (Barkley-Clayoquot region) in October 2013, looking for entangled sea lions. On this day, they saw nine entangled sea lions. They were able to disentangle two California sea lions after safely sedating them and cutting the plastic fish-packing straps they had around their necks. This mission was done in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Parks Canada, Brian Gisborne of Juan de Fuca Express and the Canadian Wildlife Federation. In 2011, the Aquarium rescued "Flash," a California sea lion that had ingested four feet of fishing equipment. After his rehabilitation at the Aquarium's Marine Mammal Rescue Centre, Flash was successfully released back to his home waters. The Rescue Centre is currently caring for a rescued sea otter suffering from gunshot wounds. Learn more about the Rescue Centre: vanaqua.org/mmr

Plastic Fork Removed From Sea Turtle's Nose
Video recorded by Sean A. Williamson. This olive ridley sea turtle was found with a plastic fork stuck inside its nostril. Lamentably, this is a consequence of a world of single-use, non-biodegradable plastic. There is a solution and it lies in our own decisions. Please say no to all single-use plastic. Every plastic straw, plastic bag, or plastic bottle that ends up in the oceans could mean the difference between life or death for any number of marine animals. The choice is easy. There are sustainable alternatives to single-use plastics. Canvas bags can replace plastic bags, bamboo cutlery can replace plastic cutlery. Please be part of the movement away from single use plastics. Nathan J. Robinson and the Las Baulas field team were able to remove the fork and the turtle returned to the ocean breathing freely!

Sea Turtle Entangled in Ghost Net Rescued
This video shows the detrimental effects of so-called ghost nets on marine animals. ***Warning: GRAPHIC CONTENT*** Video Credit and Copyright: Christine Figgener *** This footage is managed exclusively by Viralvideouk.com. If you wish to license this footage please contact [email protected] For more viral videos check here https://www.youtube.com/user/viralvideouk1 ** ----- Almost to the day exactly one year ago my research team found a plastic drinking straw embedded in a male olive ridley sea turtle's nostril (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wH878t78bw). We removed it and hopefully eased his suffering and improved his quality of life. This past 9th of August 2016, my research team once again encountered a sea turtle in distress. We found an exhausted olive ridley female swimming close to our research boat and she was dragging a huge bulk of discarded fishing net behind her. Parts of it were wrapped around her throat and had already started to cut into her flesh. We took her onboard our boat, cut-off the net, and disinfected her cuts with iodine. Due to the knowledge of the scarcity of sea turtle rehab facilities and lack of expert care for injured sea turtles in Costa Rica, we released the female back into the water since she seemed otherwise healthy and strong. As biologists, we don't actively seek out injured wildlife, but our research happens to position us at the front-lines of reality looking at the detrimental effects of human impact on wildlife. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Our research is approved by the US IACUC and is conducted under research permits issued by the Costa Rican government, MINAE/SINAC and CONAGEBio.

These nets, often nearly invisible in the dim light, can be left tangled on a rocky reef or drifting in the open sea. They can entangle fish, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, dugongs, crocodiles, seabirds, crabs, and other creatures, including the occasional human diver. Acting as designed, the nets restrict movement, causing starvation, laceration and infection, and suffocation in those that need to return to the surface to breathe.

13 Shocking Effects of Pollution
13 Very important and terrible effects of the pollution that us humans are creating from trash harming animals to noise pollution Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Acid Rain Acid rain can occur naturally from volcanic emissions but there is a direct result of human activities and acid rain. With toxic fumes getting mixed into clouds, they get absorbed into our atmosphere and can come out from rain. Animals and plants need a particular ph level in order to stay healthy... 6. Noise Pollution Effects Many of us might limit the idea of pollution only to nature and not sound. We are quite used to the sounds of urban life and it doesn’t begin to bother us. Whether it’s listening to music or pets barking, it might not be a serious issue. But when noise keeps us from going to sleep at night, it begins to turn into pollution. This normal infers to noises that are unnatural and excessive. This can actually lead to more problems than you’d like to think. Our ears were not constructed to handle the amount of noise that we might experience in the big cities of today. Loud noise can certainly lead to sleeping disorders and health issues as well. Studies show that aggressiveness can be a direct link to noise pollution. This affects other animals as well, especially since they rely heavily on sound in for things such as hunting and mating rituals. 5. Toxic Air Pollution Some places in China are experiencing record high levels of air pollution. It’s getting so rough out there that even dogs are wearing surgical masks to protect themselves from the toxic fumes. In 2015, 100 million people were warned and told to stay inside their houses across 10 different cities. Schools and factories were shut down, hoping to reduce exposure to the heavy blankets of toxic air swarming the country. Rising levels of air pollution have caused a new disease; called the Beijing Cough. This is from burning a large amount of petroleum in recent years. In the past, the air pollution from China has travelled to the Central Valley of California. A number of children suffer from respiratory illnesses and things don’t seem to be getting any better. Kids are more vulnerable to respiratory illnesses due to their size Living somewhere with a lot of pollution certainly makes it difficult for Santa Claus act jolly during Christmas time 4. Smog Smog is a direct result of air pollution and other places like LA There are several pollutants that make the sky murky. There’s particulate matter which includes smoke and is the main cause for smog. But there are other pollutants that are released which certainly don’t help. Other common air pollutants include Hydrocarbons, Sulfur Dioxides, and silent, invisible killer (carbon monoxide). Cars, and trucks also emit a large amount of smog. A simple way to reduce this is to participate in carpooling or taking public transportation. Each year, 50,000 or more people die in the US due to air pollution. 3. Trash Outweighing Fish It’s predicted that in the future, about 30 years from now if changes aren’t made, they’re will be more trash in Earth’s oceans. The amount of plastic waste is much higher than other type of trash that is found and is much more hazardous to our ecosystem. Much of this could simply be avoided by just recycling. The plastic is not only valuable to companies who want to use it, but quite important to keep out of our oceans. It takes one plastic water bottle, 450 years to biodegrade. Some bottles possibly 1000! Debris left over from fishing can be left in the ocean and harm seals like we see in this photo. 2. Fish Kills Another shocking effect of pollution is what’s known as a fish kill. This is when a large amount of fish show up dead and can be caused from numerous environmental factors. Although there are natural causes for this, things like toxicity, reduced levels of dissolved oxygen and drought are all possible ways. Agricultural pollutions with water rich in pesticides can often reach places where fish are present. If a chemical like cyanide is released into the water, people will be able to tell from the fish's gills turning a cherry red. The fish’s habitat is fairly fragile and any slight changes in chemical compounds can result in fish kills. 1. Global Warming With so much carbon and greenhouse gases being emitted into the air, where are they supposed to go? Our ozone layer which regulates our temperature, keeps gases from escaping. Temperatures changed and oceans are getting warmer and even slight changes can have dramatic consequences. Glaciers melting. Coral reefs disappearing, droughts, floods can all be a result of this. Let’s all do our part and keep mother earth alive and flourising… Before it’s too late.

Family of giant plastic waste sea creatures joins aquarium
(31 Jul 2018) LEADIN: A new family of sea creatures has joined an aquarium in New Orleans - and it's entirely made of plastic. The giant sculptures of marine animals at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas are all made from plastic waste found washed up on beaches. Among them is a great white shark made partly of bottle caps and beach toys and a jellyfish made mostly of cut-up water bottles. STORYLINE: The underwater tunnel at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans brings visitors right into the underwater world of the planet's oceans. And in addition to the splendid array of sealife to be gazed at - there's also this - plastic waste - something that is set to outnumber fish and marine life in our oceans in the next 50 years according to conservationists.   This giant sculpture of a marlin fish has been created from plastic rubbish that has washed up on beaches around the Pacific Coast.  It's part of an exhibition within the aquarium called Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea. "So, we're very excited about the Washed Ashore exhibits, because, two things: one, it's entertainment, because obviously when you look at this, there's so much to look at – and we're going to create some fun games with that – but the second thing that's really most important is, this is all garbage that washed up on the Pacific Coast in one area that they picked up. So, as an aquarium, conservation is our big issue, and we need people to know that healthy oceans means no plastics," says Brenda Walkenhorst the director of education projects for the aquarium. This great white shark is made up partly of bottle caps and beach toys. Walkenhorst hopes the exhibition will make people realize just how much plastic gets into the world's waterways, and from there into the ocean. "Maybe not everybody lives near the ocean, and we don't think about the effects of throwing a bottle of plastic in the trash can. It may not make it to an incinerator, in fact, most of it doesn't. It ends up washing out into our waterways and into the ocean," she says. The sculptures are the creation of Angela Haseltine Pozzi, who started making the pieces after seeing plastic heaped by the waves onto the Oregon coast. "I wanted it to be beautiful from a distance, and then horrifying and a real wake-up call when you get up close," she says. Pozzi says humans need to rethink their use of plastics – especially plastic items that are only used once and thrown away, including cups and straws. "The majority of plastics that are being produced now are used once and thrown away, about 60 percent of everything that we buy is only used once and thrown away, which is -  shows you the kind of rethinking we need to do." Pozzi has an army of volunteers - about 10,000 since she started in 2010 - who help her collect, prepare and assemble the beach trash into art. One of Pozzi's major conservation concerns is the great white shark. "I wanted to really show the beauty and the importance of great white sharks and also raise awareness about how they're really threatened," she says. "Her top teeth are actually made of toilet seats that I chopped and carved. And, her bottom teeth is a big PVC pipe that we cut up to get the curve, a little curve on those teeth." There's also a walk-through whale ribcage made with bucket lids, bottles, buoys, and bait traps. "The Baleen and the feeders, they just open their mouths and go through the water, and things are coming in without them purposely going after them, and that's scary."

Here's how little plastic straws are wrecking our oceans
Alaska Airlines is the latest big company to ditch plastic straws. Here's why we all should, too. The war on plastic straws is growing as more companies such as McDonald's and cites such as New York are facing pressure to find sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives that won't pollute our oceans, litter our beaches or wind up harming animals. McDonald's shareholders on Thursday rejected a proposal that asked the fast-food giant to report on the business risks of using plastic straws and look for alternatives. Despite the rejection, the fast-food giant has begun experimenting with using paper straws in its U.K. restaurants and making plastic straws available only on request. It is estimated that more than 500 million single-use plastic straws are used and thrown away every day in the U.S. alone as Americans use them at an average rate of 1.6 straws per person per day, according to the National Park Service. That translates into 175 billion straws a year. It's no wonder sea turtles are being found with plastic straws stuck up their noses. Only 14% of plastic packaging is collected for recycling, and "a staggering 32% of plastic packaging escapes collection systems," according to a 2016 study by the World Economic Forum. A study by the University of California Santa Barbara’s National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) found that 8 million metric tons of plastic trash end up in our oceans every year. That's equivalent to five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline in the world. And while plastic straws represent only a fraction of the overall tonnage of ocean plastic, they are less likely to make it into recycling bins, and their small size make them dangerous for marine animals and are consumed by fish.

Sea Turtle Rescued After Eating Balloon: Chex's Story
Chex is a green sea turtle that was rescued after eating a balloon in the ocean. This little sea turtle was found floating and struggling to dive. Make an ocean pledge in honor of Chex: https://www.seewinter.com/world-oceans-day-pledge/ Sea turtles often mistake plastic bags, balloons and other trash for jellyfish or squid. Once sea turtles start swallowing something they are unable to stop and may become sick like Chex or even die after ingesting marine debris. Fortunately, Chex was rescued, rehabilitated and released, but many other marine animals are not so lucky.

Plastic Bugs and Sea Creature Toy Hunt - Toddlers Playing and Learning Animals
Toddlers Playing and Learning Animals with Plastic Insects and Sea Creatures! Surprise Toy Hunt at the Swamp Pond We took a huge bag of plastic insects and sea creatures and hid them in the grass at a pond! It was a great setting for these creepy critters and some of them might even live there for real! The plastic bug set can be found at the dollar store! Talk about an inexpensive cheap way to keep kids entertained and have fun learning animals and learning insects. The plastic toy figures look very lifelike and resemble the real life animals that they are modeled after. We wanted our kids to associate the names of the sea creatures and bugs with the actual figures so the begin to make connections and memorize things through a natural learning state. They love watching youtube kids videos and youtube is a great teacher and day care center for kids, it is family friendly and kid friendly with the correct settings in place. We allow our children a maximum of two hours a day watching educational kids videos and also kids entertainment so they can learn to play with other kids and have fun. These activities are great family fun and help make the connections and relationships between parents and children, as well as bringing the family together.

Why Plastic Straws Suck
For years, the world has been relying on the ocean as a dumping ground for our plastic waste. This video of a sea turtle having a plastic straw pulled out of its nose sparked a public outcry to ban the use of straws. There are those who require plastic straws to drink. However, for those people who don't rely on these plastic tubes, it's simple to cut them and other single-use plastics out of our lives. We spoke to Dr. George Leonard of Ocean Conservancy and Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff to learn more about how plastic pollution is affecting the world around us Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture, and more.

Despite the vastness of Earth’s oceans, plastic pollutants are turning up everywhere, from the deep sea to the Arctic ice pack. Shockingly, researchers estimate that by 2050 the oceans will contain more plastic—by weight—than fish. As these degrading plastics leach potentially toxic chemicals into the seas, they pose a serious threat to ocean animals, as well as to humans. To combat this frightening prognosis, Hawaii—among other places—is contemplating a ban on the sale and distribution of single-use polystyrene.
