Plastic kills whale in Spain

by Mateusz, BBC School Reporter

A dead sperm whale washed up recently on a beach in Spain.

About 64 pounds of plastic killed this poor whale and that destroyed his stomach and intestines. The type of whale is a sperm whale; this shows that if we keep throwing trash into water all the poor marine life will simply die.

Please don’t throw plastic into the water or else soon there will be nothing in the ocean. If we can reduce the amount of plastic we use, then  a larger portion of marine life will be saved.

Carlos Duarte, Professor of Biology at the University of Western Australia, who was one of the researchers in a study of plastic debris, told the ‘Collective Evolution’ website: “We can’t account for 99% of the plastic that we have in the ocean”.
