Scientists were deeply disturbed by what they found in stomachs of stranded sperm whales. Twenty-nine sperm whales were found dead on the shores around the North Sea, in an area that is too shallow for marine wildlife.
According to a press release from Wadden Sea National Park in Schleswig-Holstein, many of the whales had stomachs full of plastic debris, including a 13 meter long fish net and other types of plastic litter.
These findings show us the results of our plastic oriented society. Animals consume plastic and plastic waste, which causes them to suffer, before dying a horrible death after their internal organs collapsed.
