What I see is actually pretty shocking.
So many plastic bottles, piles of them. Much of which are water bottles
Mylar balloons. They should be banned.
Supposedly they're mistaken for jellyfish in the water and get eaten by turtles, but just looking at them as litter, it amazing how many you see.
But it's the stuff that "'tangles" that's the real problem. Fishing line, rope, old nets, and yes, 6pack rings.
I see it all time. Piles of seaweed all wrapped up with rope and mono and plastic, dead birds, bottles, tampon tubes (?)
A headless seal in a ripped-up net once...somebody was pissed
I've never taken pictures of the garbage, but if you google "beach garbage" you'll see.
I do have a few pictures of what I call beach art. Flotsum sculpture
Not flotsum exactly.... old ship wreak.
