In the stomach of a dead whale found 115 plastic cups

Not far from Wakatobi National Park on Kapot Island (Indonesia), people discovered a sperm whale’s beached body. When opening the body of a 10-meter whale, the specialists saw what should not be there at all.

Experts found plastic bottles, shales, 115 plastic cups, plastic bags and other garbage – more than a thousand units. The total weight of the trash was six kilograms.

It is worth noting that the cause of death of the sperm whale has not been established – it is possible that he did not die from plastic accumulated in the body. Nevertheless, experts are alarmed by their discovery. China was found in a popular tourist area, and most of the garbage is most likely thrown away by tourists.
