In October, after the holidays, trade winds whirl about rivers of rubbish where turtles close in searching for food, but only to find a slow death in these deadly traps.
A new species strongly settles down in the ocean: plastic.
An ephemeral shelter for a few, but a sad end for the majority.
The first gif breaks my heart…a sea turtle missing its right flipper.
I’m not saying that it lost its flipper because of the trash in the sea. It could have been a predator who chomped off its flipper. What I’m saying is that turtle may possibly have lost its flipper due to a plastic or waste material that got tangled and bound its flipper. It doesn’t take rocket science to find out how.
Plants and animals are made up of body tissues. Tissues are made up of cells. Cells need vital nutrients and oxygen for repair and replenishment. For animals, blood contains these nutrients which is transported all over the body through the blood vessels. When a blood vessel is blocked or something prevents it to function properly, the tissues/organs supplied by those vessels get damaged/become infected/die because of the lack of oxygen and nutrients that it needs. So imagine how a plastic material or a rope gets stuck around that turtle’s flipper. It may have gotten stuck for a while that it eventually bound the flipper tighter as the turtle grew. As the material bounds the flipper more and more tight, it then disrupts the blood flow towards that flipper causing for it to be damaged, no longer functional and may eventually have caused it to fall off.
Remember (if you’ve seen the movie) how he grew weaker, walk slower, breathe harder? Why? Because of the plastic rings. It was choking him. How did he get it? When he was swimming in the water.
It is never right to dispose plastic and other materials into the water and even in land. As cliche as it sounds, it destroys nature. It destroys other living beings in this planet both in land, sea and air. It destroys all of us.
