בטח גם אתם שמעתם על זה שיש בעיה של פלסטיק ברחבי העולם. מדברים על זה בחדשות, אומרים שצריך להפסיק להשתמש וכמעט מתחננים לאנשים שיפסיקו להשאיר אחריהם כמויות של זבל כשהם יוצאים לחיק הטבע.
ולפעמים כשההסברה בעל פה לא עובדת, צריך משהו יותר עוצמתי. כמו למשל סדרת תמונות חזקה שתראה לכם בדיוק איך הזבל שלנו מגיע בסופו של דבר לבעלי החיים ומשפיע על הסביבה.
הנה 21 תמונות שיכנסו לכם ישר לבטן ואולי יגרמו גם לכם לנסות ולעזור לעולם שלנו.

My last visit to the Red Sea gave me this sad situation that I knew happened but I had never witnessed myself. At the end of a dive on a reef called Big Gota, we came across 2 hawksbill turtles, a male and female feeding on jellyfish. I got close to the female and took a few photos of her eating. Then I realised she had a plastic bag in her mouth and in fact wasn’t able to eat, she was just nudging the jellyfish clearly in some distress. I had to try and help so I put away my camera and tried to pull the bag from its mouth. The plastic bag was not only in her mouth but also down her throat. I had to hold onto its shell and try to wrestle from her. The turtle was surprisingly calm and let me manhandle her a little and once she opened her mouth the bag came out. There was about 8 inches down her throat and wouldn’t have been able to eat. Almost as soon as I pulled the bag out she tried to eat yet another bag that floated by, I quickly pulled that bag away and she went on to eat a few of the many jellyfish around us, she was clearly very hungry. I took a few photos and as our dive time was up we decided to ascend. Both turtles followed us up and seemed to play with us on the surface, with them at times climbing all over our cameras as we tried to photograph them. I'm not sure they were 'saying' thank you but it was a great interaction to sad introduction to these two incredible marine reptiles. I'm sure these turtles will just go on to eat the next plastic bag that floats by but I hope I helped a little. Strangely we encountered more turtles on this trip that I had ever seen before but they will soon die out unless we do something, NOW! I want our children to see with their own eyes what I've come to love on the oceans. I often talk about plastic waste in the ocean but have never seen it's effect so close up. For the love of what ever you hold dear act on this, don't leave it for someone else. Please think about this the next time someone offers you a plastic bag or disposable item, do you really need it, maybe you could just pop that item in your pocket and keep a reusable bag with you. #redsea #turtle #plastic #plasticpollution #plasticoceans #pollution

Meet Edison – Crabs with beach trash homes by Shawn Miller Found naturally using a incandescent light bulb screw end as a protective home. The hermit crab is one of the few animals that can successfully adapt with our waste. Our trash is becoming a serious problem on our shorelines. Most of the trash washed ashore are single use items, such as plastic bags, forks, spoons, twist top caps, plastic bottles, razors, flip flops, cigarette butts, tooth brushes and rope. Its time to act! What can you do to make a difference? #1frame4nature #canon #canonphotography #macro #hermitcrab #maketheswitch4nature #crabswithbeachtrashhomes ##yeahiknowshawnmiller
