The shocking picture comes from a video revealing the devastating effects man’s rubbish is having on wildlife.


just one of the shocking examples of how we're MAIMING wildlife.

i shed a tear, hell i shed a lot.

i don't care admitting that.

but these sort of vids need to be seen, might force us to take a REAL good look at ourselves and our ways.


Wildlife biologist Lauri Jemison said: ‘We are certainly underestimating the number of animals entangled. We go out every summer here in southeastern Alaska and we try to visit every haul out [where animals come to shore] and rookery [where they breed] at least once.’


article and video on dailymail. (PLEASE make sure you watch it)

This is unbelievably sad! Unfortunately no matter how much effort these organizations put into awareness, the problem will still exist due to negligent people. Just another example of how the human race is nothing but a cancer to the Earth.

S + F, the video was great.

This is so sad!
Humans have to be more responsible for their actions. They should respect the earth and all that inhabits it.

We don't even respect the humans on earth....Now you expect people to take care of their garbage and wildlife also??

I wish this was a better place also, but it isn't.....If everyone wasn't so damn lazy and staring at American Idol or some crap, we might be able to make some changes for the better!!!

This is why ALL the plastic debris should be collected and made into artificial islands for the polar bears and other sea animals dealing with the climate changes eliminating the waste in the seas...

instead we just throw it on a pile and create an 'artificial island'?

not a very good idea imho.
