It's always a thrill to see a turtle swimming underwater while snorkeling. Whether in northern territories or the tropics, these dinosaur-like creatures are a miracle to observe swimming.
Unfortunately, plastic waste in our oceans are of particular danger to turtles. Especially shopping bags as they mistake them for jellyfish, a turtle's primary food source. Also, the accumulation of plastics at key nesting beaches means that baby turtles are among the most at risk from plastic entanglement, preventing them from reaching the sea.
