A Marine Debris Story

A digital camera in a waterproof case was dropped at sea near Aruba and washed ashore in Key West, FL. It also was carried some way by a sea turtle as shown on this YouTube video. You can see the turtle thrashing about while the camera strap is connected to it. This story gives a first hand look at how any debris or trash at sea can travel many miles… and how it nearly always impacts wildlife. While a nice personal story from the standpoint of the man who located the camera’s owner, I also see it as a lesson in marine debris travel and impacts.
