Pilot whales are majestic creatures of the sea and are in the same family as dolphins. Like us, they are mammals” warm-blooded and give birth to their young. The mother pilot whale nurse her calves for more than three years, and the mother-calf bond is typically strong for this species (Photo: wikipedia).

Last week, a young male pilot whale was washed up in a canal between the Thai-Malaysian border.  A large group of volunteers tried to keep him alive by helping him stay afloat with buoys and holding up umbrellas to protect him from the scorching sun. The young whale vomited up five plastic bags, but the other EIGHTY in his stomach, weighing a whopping 8 kgs), killed him in the end.

The last plastic straw

We don’t have the global figure or for individual countries, but each day, over 500,000,000 plastic straws are used in the United States alone, and they inevitably end up as plastic pollution which harms wildlife. The short video below is just one of the many sad examples.

It makes good sense never to use plastic straws ever again! The original version of this video was made by Christine Figgener and Dr. Nathan J. Robinson. You can click here to view it. In the meantime, do head over to Plastic Pollution Coalition to sign The Last Plastic Straw Pledge.
