How Humans Affect the Environment Or Wildlife

Plastic pollution causes great harm to the organisms big and small that encounter it. From tiny corals to majestic whales, more than 700 marine species are known to be killed either by the ingestion of plastic or entanglement - resulting in more than 100 million animal deaths a year, that we know of. 
Made to be used just once, plastic can last forever in the environment. Once a plastic bag, abandoned fishing net or bottle cap has killed by entanglement, strangulation, suffocation or starvation, it simply has to wait for its victim to decompose to be released back into the environment. Plastic does not decompose - it will be ready to kill again soon.
