    According to Greenpeace, there are 267 known species who have died from entanglement or ingestion of sea pollutants, directly relating to ‘Garbage Island’, including Seabirds, whales, turtles, seals, fish…

    Jellyfish also often consume the toxic plastics from floating garbage, which are in turn consumed by larger animals, which are at times then consumed by humans.  The toxic effects of the pollution of our oceans are not contained to the water.
