Waste collected on a beach. Group of volunteers with bags of waste collected from a beach. Many forms of waste are not biodegradable and persist in the environment if not disposed of correctly. Such 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 on the island of Mabul, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia.
