We need to stop this, and also clean this up. Stop buying plastic! Buy in bulk, save money, save your bags for life, lose weight, eat healthy, and when it comes to buying soft plastics make sure they get recycled by you or don't buy it and find a better way.
Incidental capture in fishing gear, aka 'bycatch', is likely the greatest threat to #seaturtles and many other species worldwide.
