80 plastic bags clog stomach of dead whale

In the stomach of a dead whale discovered a terrible discovery: there are photos

Horrifying footage shows how a whale died after swallowing 80 plastic bags - despite vets spending a week trying to save the animal.

Nearly 20 pounds of plastic bags and other plastic trash were pulled from the stomach of a pilot whale that died over the weekend in Thailand, officials have said.

The male pilot whale was found on Monday, May 28, struggling to swim in waters off the coast of Songkhla province, southern Thailand, near the Malaysian border.

An autopsy revealed the shocking amount of plastic pollution lodged in the whale's stomach that was preventing it from eating - slowly starving the 12ft long animal to death.

"We use way too much plastic".

Experts say that the bags would have made it impossible for the small whale to digest normal food.

Thai people use huge numbers of plastic bags and authorities there have introduced campaigns to encourage people to cut back or introduce reusable bags.

"Without specific goals for reducing plastic consumption and more effective waste management, people do not know what to do, even if they want to do more", said Tara Buakamsri, Thailand country director of Greenpeace Southeast Asia. The Thai government has proposed enacting a tax on plastic bags to reduce the amount of plastic polluting the world's waters.

"We have a goal to reduce plastic waste by adjusting policies and practices, from their beginning in the production line, then on to consumers' hands and on to waste management at the end", said Wijarn Simachaya at the environment ministry. There are eight million tons of bags and bottles being dumped in the world's oceans, every year.

Participants at the event pointed out that shoppers in the country still use a lot of plastic bags, and there are not enough facilities to dispose of them. Kenya a year ago enacted the world's toughest law against plastic bags. "We have no idea how many animals aren't showing up on a beach", Asmutis-Silvia said.
