Today we went to a coral reef snorkelling spot popular with both Balinese locals and tourists. Swimming with so many fish was amazing, however swimming amongst vast amounts of plastic rubbish was not.
We all know there is a plastic pollution issue but today completely opened my eyes to how bad it really is. Between the 5 of us, we managed to collect a bag full in under an hour which felt like a lot, but every time we went back under, there were hundreds more pieces floating around, with some fish even attempting to eat it.
The ocean is incredible so we should do whatever we can to save it, whether you get reusable straws and coffee cups, or if every time you go to the beach anywhere in the world, you pick up any plastic you see. Every little bit will help (p.s. think of the baby turtles 🐢) ♻️🌎💙 #OceanConservation#PlasticPollution
