Postcard from the DEEPEND: Something Scary for Halloween Pt 2

Did you identify the scariest thing in the sea? Did you guess jelly, ctenophore, or maybe a salp?

ID DEEPEND WhaleTimes sm

You’d be wrong. One of the scariest things in the sea is trash that escapes from our homes, schools, and lives. If it’s hard for us to identify, you can see why animals like sea turtles, seabirds and others accidently eat trash.
