PLEASE READ ! 🌊♻🌊♻ plastic pollution is killing our marine life. did you know that around 8million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean every year? our marine life is suffering- turtles,seabirds,dolphins and whales have died from eating plastic waste like single-use bags. Australians use around 4 BILLION plastic bags every year (I was freakin shocked when I went grocery shopping and the cashier packed almost every item into a new bag) - that's a whopping 10million each day. An estimated 50 million of these end up in our waterways and ocean. SA,Tassie,the Northern Territory and ACT already have successful plastic bag bans in place.It's time for the four biggest States: Queensland,NSW,Victoria and WA-to step up and take plastic bags off the menu for marine life. Every name that is added builds momentum around the campaign and makes it more likely to get plastic bags banned.

How does climate change affect polar bears so dramatically? Polar bears rely on sea ice to access the seals that are their primary source of food as well as to rest and breed. With less sea ice every year, polar bears and many other ice-dependent creatures are at risk.
