Okay, do you see these?
it's a plastic straw! how cute, right? Look, he comes in little unique—
THIS LITTLE FELLA?
IT COULD RESULT IN A SEA TURTLE'S DEATH.
You see, I’m a volunteer at my local aquarium. As part of our training, we select a certain animal we'd like to study and/or run it's information station. I happened to pick sea turtles (with my best friend, of course).
So, we were briefed on basic facts on what to tell them. And sea turtles, being oblivious, eat not just plastic bags, but plastic straws as well, mistaking them for food. A lot of animals do this, actually.
A lot of people have gotten into the boycott of plastic straws. If you're eating out, ask for a drink with no straw. If you're getting a soda at a restaurant, get no straw. Any time/place you are offered a straw, say no. Doing just that can save a sea turtle's life.
It's really sad to see how consumers have affected sea wildlife. I just want the best for this world, and that's why I’m asking for everyone's help.
So, don't use straws. It's as simple as that.
Thank you and goodnight *drops microphone and walks off*
*awkwardly walks back in and picks up* these things cost money I ain’t risking that
sorry if this comes off as harsh but I am passionate about saving sea turtles, mods please let this through
