Entangled green sea turtle

Marine debris can entangle and harm marine organisms. For air-breathing organisms, such as the green sea turtle, entanglement in debris can prevent animals from being able to swim to the surface, causing them to drown.

 

For more information about marine debris and how it can be prevented, visit the NOAA Marine Debris Program website.
