Is ocean garbage killing whales?

Sunday July 10, 2011, 11:01 pm It sure is! Necropsies on whale here on the pacific coast have yielded so much of it in them that has jelled and clogged up everything, preventing them from getting any food to stay alive, along with causing other problems. The days when we cut up the plastic sixpack beveridge holders and feeling we had "done are part" is long over. We have to get in front of this immediately, before we have bodies of all kinds of marine life washing up on our beaches, lakes and riverbanks. And I have seen a dead whale up close and personal, and it is a heartbreaking, gutwrenching site. send green star | flag as inappropriate Why is this inappropriate?
