Transcript of The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
By: Emily St.Clair The Great Pacific Garbage Patch stretches hundreds of miles across the Pacific Ocean. Most of the garbage patch is made of plastic, and unlike most other trash, plastic isn't biodegradable. About 80% of debris in the Great Pacific Garbage
Patch comes from land; most of this is plastic bags
and bottles. The debris in the Garbage Patch causes
many hazards to marine life. The small bits of plastic produced by photo degradation are
called mermaid tears, or nurdles. They can get sucked up by
filter feeders and damage their bodies. Some marine animals eat the plastic floating in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch not knowing that it can kill them. Plastic and other debris can
damage boats and their equipment.
