BATTLING plastic pollution is still on and many countries around the world still face challenges to control it.
Yesterday, a marine Biologist from the Auckland University of Technology, Steph Borrelle, said that plastics are found everywhere and in all corners of the ocean from Antarctic to Arctic and at the deepest point of the ocean “The Mariana Trench”.
Plastics end up in the ocean creating a harmful environment for marine life.
In Bangkok recently, a team of marine veterinarians with the help of volunteers removed 18 bags of plastics (8 kg) from the stomach of a dead male pilot whale.
Videos uploaded on YouTube evidently shows marine animals ingested plastic and straws and some are entangle.
