Type of Event
Let’s start saving our ocean and keep our coastline plastic free! It is important to keep our beaches clean if we hope to keep our oceans clean. The sand and surf is far more than a place to build sand castles and take a dive.
Most sea animals mistake trash for certain food sources. Last March, a dead juvenile male Cuvier’s beaked whale who washed up on the shores of Davao was found with 40 kilograms of plastic waste in his stomach. The animal had died from “gastric shock” after ingesting so much plastic.
According to a National Geographic report, “As the plastic pollution crisis grows, more and more dolphins, whales, birds, and fish are found dead with their stomachs full of plastic. In 2015, scientists estimated that around 90 percent of all seabirds have ingested some amount of plastic; UNESCO estimates that 100,000 marine mammals die because of plastic pollution each year.”
Plastics also end up in the seafood we eat. It is not yet know how our body processes plastic after it’s swallowed. A study by researchers at the University of Ghent found that the average person who eats seafood swallows up to 11,000 pieces of microplastic every year .
Hope you can join the beach clean up scheduled on October 190-20 at Casa Encodido in Anilao, Batangas. I’ll be leading the yoga classes and sound meditation before and after the clean ups.
