Over the past year, 129 marine endangered species in Thailand have been injured or killed from sea garbage, which means every 68 hours one of them has been tortured or died from ingesting our rubbish.

 

Marine specialist Dr Thon Thamrongnawasawat says that, based on data from the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources over the past year, 129 marine endanger species in Thailand have been injured or died from rubbish floating in our seas.

 

“This number just counts the dead marine species found washed up on our beaches. There are many others that aren’t washed up along our coastlines.”

What do you expect then , when every year 8.000.000.000 TONS of plastic is dumped in the seas?!!!

There are islands of plastic as big as the state of Texas.

Starting to get hard to find a beach without plastic crap all over it here on the Eastern seaboard. Went to sai keaw on children's day, the sea was full of assorted garbage. Ugh.
