Observing a dolphin dying from plastic

Today Futurismo's crew and clients witnessed the tragic moment of a dolphin dying. The dolphin had plastic caught around it's mouth and unfortunately we could not do anything to save it. Other dolphins were trying to help remove the plastic by using their noses to to push against the distressed dolphin's stomach while also trying to help it stay at the surface. Despite these efforts after a few minutes the dolphin stopped breathing. The worst part is that humans are responsible for this death and it reminded us how carefull we must be and what happens in nature when we let our rubbish end up in the oceans.
