I feel ashamed.
Our oceans are becoming dumping grounds that many people are oblivious to.
I travel between Australia and Malaysia monthly and the crap in the ocean from Bali northwards all the way to Malaysia is mind-blowing - if it's
man-made and floats, you can guarantee it's there.
The Indonesian Archipelago is by far the worst, not only with debris (plastic bags and sandals are the worst) but the colour of the ocean is also
MARPOL regulations (Annex V) have recently been implemented and now pretty much nothing is allowed to be dumped overboard except ground-down food
scrapes - and even then you must be 12nm off the coast. Good luck enforcing that - some people just don't give a ship!
Like I said, I am ashamed, after watching that, the Booby Birds deserve better......much better, we are irresponsible for allowing the planet to get
to such a despicable state in the first place.
