The Floating Death Trap That’s Killing Hundreds of Ocean-Dwelling Creatures


We all know pollution in our oceans are an ecological disaster waiting to happen. Whether it’s an oil spill or an island-sized pile of floating plastic, we are not treating our natural waters kindly.

Even more shocking is the massive ‘ghost net’ that was recently discovered drifting off the coast of the Cayman Islands. Hundreds of ocean-dwelling creatures were caught up in the net. You won’t believe how difficult this death trap will be to fix!
