Sea Turtles in Danger

Updated: Sep 16

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.
