Where the world is talking about pollution and its dangers to the land and sea, in Indonesia, a dead whale has been found with 1,000 pieces of plastic in her stomach. Is it not something do be surprised and sad about?
The sperm whale was spotted in Wakatobi National Park near Kapota Island which is towards the southeast of Sulawesi.
The officials found plastic bottles, bags, ladies footwear, and more than 100 plastic cups in her stomach and a sack with more than 1000 string pieces.
The whale was found in an area which is popular among tourists and locals and though the cause of the death seems unknown, the facts are extremely alarming. However, it seems that this is an impact of the air pollution on marine life.
Previously, in June, a male whale was found dead in southern Thailand and 17 pounds of plastic were recovered from her stomach including bags and packaging.
According to one of the previous reports by the Ocean Conservancy and the McKinsey Center for Business and Environment, about 50 percent of the plastic that fell or that was wasted in the oceans across the world claims that the two whales died in dangerous ocean waters.
Last month, the risk of the plastic being thrown in the water bodies was highlighted when an ancient bottle that had dish washing liquid in it washed up a lot of the part of a beach in the UK.
