Plastic Pollution: a Threat to Marine Life
These posters show different types of plastic pollution and its catastrophic affects on our oceans. Sea turtles are especially at risk, as they suffer a 50% chance of mortality as soon as they have ingested only a few pieces of plastic. The conservation of turtles is very important and crucial to the oceans, as they and their feeding habits can help mitigate climate change.
I chose this topic because the protection of marine animals, particularly turtles, is close to my heart and since a few years now I have been active in supporting several turtle conservation organisations. Additionally, for the past 6 months I have been reading many books about living plastic free and tried (and am still trying) to reduce my own plastic consumptions.
With these posters I aim to inform people through facts about what is really happening to our oceans every day and how plastic pollution is affecting living organisms, as well as influencing climate change.
