While spring is beginning here on land, it is also an exciting time for our marine friends. Bowhead whales, identified by their large, curved heads, begin breaking up sea ice with their thick skulls in order to clear a breathable path for their spring migration. Other whale species, like the North Atlantic Right Whales, are busy nursing their newborn young while they make their way north for the warmer months.
Once of the biggest offenders in the war against plastic pollution seems innocent enough: the plastic straw. But straws are one of the most prevalent pieces of plastic found in our oceans today.
At Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanups, volunteers have picked up more than half a million straws and stirrers, making straws one of the top ten items on their annual list. Straws pose a real danger to animals like sea turtles, albatross and fish who can eat them.
Want to help? Skip the straw!
