A dead whale in Philippines was found with 40kg(88lbs) of plastic bags inside its stomach,shocked the world by giving a real sight of plastic wastes.
Workers at D’Bone Collector Museum recovered the Cuvier’s beaked whale east of Davao City earlier in March.
In a Facebook post, the museum said the animal was filled with “the most plastic we have ever seen in a whale”.
Five Asian nations – China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand – accounted for up to 60% of the plastic waste that ends up in oceans, according to a 2015 report by environmental campaigner Ocean Conservancy and the McKinsey Center for Business and Environment.
In June last year, a pilot whale died in Thailand after swallowing 80 plastic bags.
