A Dead Whale Found With 6 Kg Of Plastic In It Is Sad Proof Of How Rapidly We’re Killing Our Planet

The body of a 31-feet-long sperm whale washed ashore in Indonesia's Kapota Island on Monday and upon inspection it was found that eating plastic could be a reason for the mammal's death.

WWF Indonesia posted a picture of a dead sperm whale with the breakdown of things that were found in its stomach. 

This translates to:

Hard plastic (19 pieces, 140g), plastic bottles (4 pieces, 150g), plastic bags (25 pieces, 260g), flip-flops (2 pieces, 270g), pieces of string (3.26kg) & plastic cups (115 pieces, 750g). 

Regarding the matter, a WWF Indonesia official news%2Fworld-asia-46275742" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;text-decoration:none;color:#FF6600 !important;">said:

Although we have not been able to deduce the cause of death, the facts that we see are truly awful.

Well, they are.

Plastic waste on sea shores is not a new problem; it has persisted for decades. 

animals have been dying, species are getting endangered. 

But we won't learn a lesson, will we? 

Because lives of animals don't matter. So what if a whale died? That's okay. If a plastic cup costs the life of an animal. So be it. 

Earlier this year, another whale that had washed ashore, had eaten 80 plastic bags

According to a UN report, marine life is facing 'irreparable damage' as an insane 10m tonnes of plastic waste finds its way in the ocean every year.
