Why is plastic trash dangerous to marine animals?
Animals can mistake it for food and choke on it
They can try to eat it and die or get injured badly by it.
You could lose oxygen, when a plastic bag is over your head, and suffocate. Plastic bags and other garbage are also, if not properly disposed of, very dangerous to animals; leaving this kind of trash lying around is bad for us and the environment in general.
Plastic is the most dangerous kind of trash found in the ocean.
Trash causes land, air and water pollution that can cause marine animals, flying animals and land animals to die of consuming the trash that we throw away each day and dying.
All of our waste drains down to the ocean. Animals get caught in our trash and die. They choke on all the pollution. Not only does our trash kill our marine life, it makes our oceans dirty and disgusting. Piles of trash have been spotted of the coast of California. Animals get caught in all the trash and end up being washed up on shore. A few years ago i experienced this. I was walking… Read More
the animals could get caught up in the trash and choke, suffocate etc, or they may try to eat the trash.
Trash affects our environment in many different ways for e.g. Air Pollution Sea Pollution- which then leads to affecting the marine animals
many animals would die and are water would be contaminated
marine debris is trash in the ocean
It pollutes the water and kills the fish and mammals. Plastic bags and other things are swallowed by marine mammals killing them.
Yes most animals are in danger because of trash and littering such as birds eating plastic and choking, the waste that gets dumped into the ocean can injure fish and decrease the population.... that is a bad thing.
One particular issue that is harming the oceans is pollution. Debris from trash and accidental oil spills causes harm to plant and marine animals.
All animals can be effected by trash.
Take it back to shore with you for proper disposal. Do not dump plastic trash in the water.
landfills hurt anyone, they take up space and since plastic doesn't desintigrate they are almost like littering tons of trash.
You can get them in trash yards where they put all the cans, plastic, and trash in.
Trash affects the ocean in a quantity of ways. Trash can kill many animals, or even a large amount of a species. Animals can be strangled or suffocated by the trash. If a large amount of a species if affected, it can be very dangerous to the ecosystem. If one species begins to fall in population, many other species may be affected because of the food web. Organisms in an ecosystem are connected to one… Read More
sometimes animals think the trash as food, and eat it which they eather die or get very sick, and they can get traped in them
yes. there are baby birds on the island. they get fed plastic because their parents fly over the water and mistake it for food -Mark Washington
oil spills, trash and bacteria has been killing the marine species
if you do marine dumping you get rid of trash
all the animals and fish and sea turtles are affected by the ocean trash
Melted plastic is generally non-toxic and usually a pain to remove. It is generally disposed of as trash, as it cannot really be re-used. If it's hot, it is hazardous as it can burn you and tends to stick to skin and materials. In that light, it is dangerous. Melted plastic is the material used in injection molding. That melted plastic is not "bad" as it is being used for a purpose (the manufacture of… Read More
plastic bags can help you pick trash up or other stuff
It can kill the animals.
Too much Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is causing global warming an climate change. Deforestation is a serious issue. Plants provide us with oxygen to breath, and obviously when entire forests are destroyed it is a major issue. Pollution of rivers, waterways and oceans is a concern. Plastic trash is being eaten by marine animals and birds and is getting into the human food chain.
Plastic bags can be reused as trash bags for the bathroom trash or to store things in. They should not be used as balloons. They should not be used as floating devices either.
DO NOT put trash in the water because that creates contamination because of the germs in the trash. If you want to protect animals that live in the sea, then DO NOT PUT TRASH IN THE WATER!!
we cant burn are trash because it pollutes the air and if you pollute the air you are harming other people and animals and we may have to live somewhere else
They can get caught in the bags and other plastics and suffocate. They can also drown, and for birds cannot fly, making them very vulnerable.
Trash can pollute, by two basic ways. 1, It can breakdown into the elements it is made from and some of these can be harmful to the earth, plants, human and animals leaving dangerous substances that can kill or otherwise damage, or the elements can be transferred into the plants grown in the polluted area, and then passed on to animals and humans. 2. The break down can fail to occur in a timely and… Read More
Paper and plastic make up the largest percentage of trash. People can recycle the paper and plastic products in order to reduce the waste.
Some landfill trash decomposes. It takes a while for things like glass and plastic to decompose, but it does.
The chemicals in plastic trash cans can effect birds and other wildlife. When plastic breaks down in the environment, it can affect the environment. The effects are studied by earth scientists.
Water pollution effects animals because when animals are thirsty, they drink in water full of gas and trash. Also, it's hard for water animals to swim if there is gas to make the water murky and trash to be in their way. Also, an animal could get caught in trash and drown or get a serious wound.
it is an uninhabitable environment when it has cans plastic and trash in it
i think glad
The manufacturing process of metallic trash cans produces a lot of pollution compared to producing plastic trash cans. They are also lightweight, and thus demand less effort to move around, again reducing the amount of pollution generated.
Green plastic is recycled plastic made from various plastic products. These recycled items help reduce the amounts of trash and land fills the world has.
You don't necessarily kill an animal every time that you litter, like you throw a soda can out the window and, in that instant, an animal dies, but there are many things that are killing animals because you litter. An animal can eat your trash and it may get stuck in its throat or stomach because animals can't digest plastics, glass, or metals. that is a big thing that contributes to the animal's death. It's… Read More
The marine biome is threatened by pollution, oil spills, and excessive hunting of species that live there, as well as trash floating in the water.
Well, that depends. It depends on, first, how many animals eat the trash. The other thing is that nothing in the trash there could actually kill them unless it is something sharp or something that is not be eaten by animals. I hope this answered your question well enough :)
Paper or plastic?
glad bags is correct
it might be plastic........... its my best guess.
paper and plastic
Please rephrase - does not make sense or I will trash the question.
Trash is effecting animals on Earth by: new (unnatural) food they eat in garbage causing new diseases in an area where trash is left causing some animals to choke because they try to eat it taking up space that the animals once called home damaging the natural balance of that ecosystem
The more use of plastic it increases the trash because the plastic can't wasted it can only be shape into another thing that's why there is recycling
