Marine debris is not just ugly it is dangerous

·Discarded debris damages habitat by breaking or smothering important ecosystems such as coral reefs.

·Debris in the ocean is often difficult to see and can cause damage to vessels.

·Derelict fishing gear continues to catch fish and other animals.

·Marine debris is often mistaken by wildlife for food and can lead to starvation and death.

·The most graphic impact is entanglement of wildlife such as seabirds, whales, and turtles resulting in injury, illness, suffocation, starvation, and death.
