Sea Turtles in Danger

Updated: Sep 16, 2020

Today I read an article from smithsonianmag.com (See Resources page for the link) about how much plastic it takes to kill a sea turtle. Below you will see several visuals about the harm plastic does to sea turtles.


The Above chart shows how the more plastic a turtle eats, the higher chance it has of dying. In the pictures below, each blue dot represents one dead turtle, and each green dot represents a turtle that survived. I learned that the turtles can not regurgitate, so it is very heartbreaking for me.

I did not know that sea turtles were dying from swallowing plastic. I did not know they can’t regurgitate and spit out the plastic! That is really sad. I am glad you are telling people about this! Thank you! I look forward to learning more! This is great!
