Published: Wednesday, December 9, 2020
Oceana recently published a report, "Choked, Strangled, Drowned: The Plastics Crisis Unfolding in Our Oceans," that included data from the Sea Turtle Hospital's recently published paper on Plastic Ingestion in Post-hatchling Sea Turtles.
Oceana reveals for the first time the available data on marine mammals and sea turtles swallowing or becoming entangled in plastic in U.S. waters. Oceana’s report found that plastics affected animals at all life stages, from recently hatched sea turtles to seal mothers with nursing pups.
