Caption

Green turtle (Chelonia mydas) and waste plastic bag. Turtles often mistake plastic bags for jellyfish, their normal food. Plastic waste is typically not biodegradable and persists in the environment if not disposed of correctly. Plastic waste can have a severe long-term effect on the marine environment, both as large items that can choke and entangle animals, and as it breaks up into microscopic fragments that can enter the food chain. Photographed off the island of Sipadan, Borneo, Malaysia.
