The Guardian: 30 plastic bags, 1 dead whale: Shocking toll of vast ocean pollution laid bare
Published time: 3 Feb, 2017
Researchers have discovered more than 30 plastic bags inside the stomach of a dead whale, which likely blocked its intestines and led to it becoming stranded several times in shallow waters off the coast of Norway.
The scientists described the mass of human-produced refuge lodged in the whale’s stomach as “not surprising” given the amount of plastic littering the Earth’s waters.
