Green turtle washed ashore dead due to plastic waste in Medewi




Today we received the news ( info through Runa

Weidemann) that 3 days ago this beautiful young Green Turtle (celonia mydas) was found dead in Medewi. After necropsy it was found that a piece of plastic was blocking the anus of the turtle. Plastic is a huge problem in the world, causing the death of many sea animals. Always live up to the rule of leaving nothing but footprints when you go to the beach!
