This Earth Day let's be more aware, watch this short clip (and quick snip) from our friends Tim and The Australian Reptile Park.
Today is Earth Day and this year's focus is to end plastic pollution. This is something I am truly passionate about and I KNOW we can actually make a difference... to this if we just do small things everyday..
Too many times I have come across animals that have been injured or have died due to plastic waste and THIS HAS TO STOP!
From poisoning and from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet.
In this video I had a beautiful satin bowerbird brought in with a plastic ring pull stuck around it's neck. Luckily it was brought to us so we could save it, other animals that encounter plastic are not so lucky.
So this Earth Day take the pledge to stop using single use plastics and lets all work together to help change this planet for the better!
When my time comes, I'm leaving the lot to them.
