Plastic Bags kill another whale

"The presence of plastics in seas and oceans is one of the greatest threats to the conservation of wildlife throughout the world," said Consuelo Rosauro, from the Murcian Government.

"Many animals get trapped in the trash or ingest large amounts of plastics that end up causing their death."

Twenty-nine kilograms of rubbish including plastic bags, sacks of raffia straw, ropes, nets and a drum were uncovered from the whale's digestive tract by the local El Valle Wildlife Recovery Centre.
