Aquatic animals eat plastic unintentionally; sometimes so much that they starve

Occasionally dead animals end up on beaches, which turn out to have a lot of plastic in their stomachs. Sometimes this is so much plastic that they weren't able to eat enough anymore and starved.
This is why this plastic ends up in their stomachs: - Plastic can look like food. For example, a plastic bag is seen as a jellyfish. - Plastic gets covered by real food. For example, larger fish eat fish that have already plastic in their bodies. - Plastic is invisible. For example, animals filtering plankton unintentionally filter microplastics as well. - Plastic can have characteristics that attract animals from eating them.

            This poignant observation underscores the severe consequences of plastic pollution on aquatic animals, leading to unintentional ingestion and starvation. The various ways in which plastic ends up in their stomachs, from mistaken identity to the incorporation into the food chain, highlight the pervasive nature of this environmental issue. The comment effectively emphasizes the urgent need to address plastic pollution to safeguard marine life, contributing to the broader fight against climate change and ecological degradation.

                      @joseph_githinji The best way out is to stop or regulate plastic production!
