Plastavfallet i havet ved Kanariøyene får oppmerksomhet fra den kjente skuespilleren.Havet rundt Kanariøyene er hjem til et ekstraordinært biologisk mangfold, og er et viktig habitat for et stort antall arter, mange av dem utrydningstruet. Men nå utsettes dette økosystemet for en alvorlig trussel - nemlig plastikkavfall i havet. Innlegget fra DiCaprio på Instagram:

#Regram #RG @sealegacy: A young sea turtle drags a tangle of fishing nets and other debris through the open ocean off the coast of the Canary Islands. This is just one example of the danger that #plasticpollution poses to the health of marine wildlife. Seabirds and whales are found dead with their bellies full of #plastic. Coastal communities the world over are suffocated by plastic waste that comes from far-off shores. And in America, the plastics industry intends to expand production at least 35% by 2025 - with no plan for preventing more #plasticpollution from entering our ocean, or protecting frontline communities from toxic pollutants. Current #US regulations are decades old and we think it's well past time for @EPAgov to update them. Will you join us and stand up for our ocean, our communities and help #StopPlasticPolluters? Join us and start #TurningTheTide by signing the petition (link in our bio and in our stories) to make sure the #EPA knows you want new standards for protecting our #ocean. #BreakFreeFromPlastic and join the 275+ organizations standing in support including @SeaLegacy @BlueSphereFoundation @lonelywhale ? : @francisperez000 UPDATE: Hi everyone! Several of you asked what happened to this little sea turtle, and we are happy to be able to tell you that she was cut free soon after this video was taken. Thank you for your concern for her safety and well-being. ???
