Jellyfishes and plastic bag driffting. For us, humans, a submerged plastic bag hardly resembles a jellyfish but for a sea turtle, a ocean sunfish or a dolphin the difference will not seem so obvious. So they frequently ingest drifting plastic bags or other plastic garbage they find in the ocean. Unlike their natural food plastic is not digestible and causes them obstructions of the digestive tract and a long death with great suffering. Portugal
