#savetheturtles

Such a sad fact. Yesterday, I used more single use plastic travelling than I have in my last 5 years. 😔♻️ It is now believed that there are 5.25 trillion pieces of #plastic debris in the #ocean. Of that mass, 269,000 tons float on the surface, while some four billion plastic microfibers per square kilometer #litter the deep #sea.
Shoppers worldwide are using approximately 500 billion #singleuse #plasticbags per year.

This translates to about a million bags every minute across the globe, or 150 bags a year for every person on #earth.
If you joined them end on end they would circumnavigate the globe 4,200 times.

100,000 #marine creatures a year die from #plasticentanglement and these are the ones found.

Approximately 1 million #seabirds also die from #plastic.

A plastic bag can kill numerous animals because they take so long to disintegrate. An animal that dies from the #bag will decompose and the bag will be released, another animal could harmlessly fall victim and once again eat the same bag.

The #1 man made thing that sailors see in our ocean are plastic bags.

There are believed to be 46,000 pieces of plastic in every square mile of #ocean.

It can take anything between 20-1000 years for a plastic #bag to break up into smaller pieces. They don’t break down and those that do, break down into polymers and #toxic chemicals.

It takes just 4 family #shopping trips to accumulate 60 #shoppingbags.

World wide, 13,000-15,000 pieces of plastic are dumped into the ocean every day.

Every year, 6.4 million tonnes are dumped into the ocean. This is the same as 3,200 kilometres of trucks each loaded with #garbage.

At least 2/3 of the world’s #fish stocks are suffering from plastic ingestion.

#Oceanacidification is a growing problem

Scientists have identified 200 areas declared as ‘dead zones’ where no life organisms can now grow. (📸 @officialenvironmentalfacts)

Don’t disturb nesting females. Sea turtles can get easily spooked when they’re starting the nesting process, sometimes causing them to “false crawl” and return to sea without nesting.

“One of the main reasons I was so excited to start my journey in the ocean was the fact that I'd eventually see a sea turtle. Watching them swim makes me a bit envious of how elegant they are and how easy they make it look. I've often found myself trying to imitate how beautiful they look under the water but I'm pretty sure I end up just looking extremely weird.” 📹 and ✍️: @sean___davis3

"For her the ocean was more than a dream, it was a place she needed to visit to find herself. And when she returned to the city, you could see the sun in her eyes, the wind in her hair, the taste the infinite salt on her lips" 🐢. Can't believe all the wild sea turtles I saw yesterday when snorkeling in the ocean...such beautiful creatures 🐚🌴. #protectthem #savetheturtles #protectmarinelife #scuba #scubadiving #snorkel #dive #diving #turtles #swim #bikinilife #travel #wanderlust #wander #gypsysoul #adventure

A walk on the beach quickly turned into a beach clean-up session. Good thing I had a lot of poo bags. Managed to collect 5 bags full of rubbish including 4bottles, a fishing lure, a whole lot of rope and plastic and a golf ball! Annoyingly, at the end of the walk there were no bins- recycling or general to put this in so it all got taken home with us to be dealt with. Do your bit and take your litter home or if you're out and about with your doggo, pick some up with a poo bag 😂 I'm going to bring a bigger bag next time 😁
