OMG Founders Launch “Plastic Awareness Week” in School

Plastic Awareness Week tasks all students and families to bring in their plastic trash every day to school. The plastic trash will be collected in a trailer located in the front of the school during the week so each child can watch and see the quick accumulation of plastic trash their small school amasses.

THE NIGHTMARE of human pollution was exposed for all to see today when Phuket veterinarians cut open a giant leatherback turtle in a post mortem.

Cetaceans and other marine life regularly mistake plastic bags for jellyfish as the ocean current sometimes forces bags to open and close, mimicking the way a jellyfish swims, whales like Temata will immediately swallow them. Sadly, it’s too late for this whale but hopefully other whales around the Cook Islands will be saved from such an horrendous death – pollution kills.
