Yet again…plastic bag is the cause of turtle death


Found this article just yesterday:

27 Feb 08

AUTHORITIES have lashed out at irresponsible litterers after a giant green turtle was found choking to death off a Darwin beach yesterday.

The adult female _ believed to be about 40 years old _ was spotted in distress floating about 200m offshore in Fannie Bay.

It is believed she had swallowed a plastic bag.

Please, please, please! Don’t litter. It affects your environment more than you know.
