The Last Straw

Plastic may degrade into microplastics, but the impact that they have is not so micro. Over 100 million marine animals are killed every year and 700 marine species are threatened due to plastic pollution. It is in our position to make daily changes through our actions to preserve the environment and coexisting life, and to give hope for future generations.

How ocean pollution affects marine life

Seabirds

90% of all seabirds have eaten plastic today—a number that has skyrocketed from 5% in 1960, and expected to rise to 99% by 2050. Straws are especially harmful, as they can be easily picked up and swallowed, which can suffocate and choke the bird, or build up storage in their stomachs which causes them to starve. Sadly, over 1 million seabirds die each year from ingesting plastic.

Fish

The unfortunate tales continue with fish, which take in microscopic plastic debris through its gills. A recent study found suggested that this form of plastic ingestion may take up to six times as long for the animal to rid themselves compared to oral ingestion. Plastic microfibers, which leech harmful toxins like BPA, make their way up through the food chain affecting other species, and our dinner plates.

Sea Turtles

We’ve all seen that heart wrenching video, where researchers off the coast of Costa Rica remove a plastic straw embedded in the nostril of an olive ridley sea turtle, an endangered species. It is likely that the sea turtle accidentally swallowed the straw, then got it stuck up its nostril while trying to cough it out. Seeing the devastating outcomes on animals and the environment from our own action acts as a catalyst for change.
