Dolphins had plastic bags attached to their dorsal fins and tails


We could clearly see the existing problem with the plastics in the ocean.

Yesterday, in our first afternoon encounter with bottlenose dolphins, we found 3 individuals with fragments of plastic stuck on their dorsal and caudal fins.


Due to these pieces of plastic, their mobility might be reduced to the point that they are unable to socialize, travel or even feed themselves.



We have to acquire environmental conscience about this topic, change our plastic consumption habits, avoid disposable items, recycle. The future of the oceans it's in our hands.
