The consequences of leaving plastics on the beach.

This film is from Midway Island in the Pacific Ocean, which is uninhabited, apart from the birds.

BBC Television series Rhys to the Rescue talks about the danger caused by plastic bags to Turtles. Turtles follow the Jelly Fish into Cardigan Bay during the summer months.

The program discusses how the turtles eat plastic bags, which they mistake for a Jelly Fish. This can often result in the death of the animal.
