A crab floats in a plastic cup near the surface of the water in a cove in Batangas.

How long does a plastic bottle stay in the ocean for? Long enough to grow barnacles and not even start to break down in shape.

Since floating plastic looks a lot like a jellyfish, sea tortoises often mistake them for food.

A hermit crab tries to adapt to waste by using a light bulb as its new protective home.

After 2,500 barrels (105,000 gallons) of crude oil gushed onto San Refugio State Beach, staff and volunteers worked to clean oil off a brown pelican.

A member of the Sri Lankan coast guard was covered in oil as he worked to remove an oil spill at a beach in Uswetakeiyawa, Sri Lanka.

This little koala wandered back to its home only to find it had been cut down and chipped by logging operations. It had been sitting on top of the wood pile for over an hour looking confused.

A swan decided to build a nest using plastic garbage.

Buildings can barely be seen through smog behind an unfinished bridge in Tianjin, China.

In some regions of China, people have to wear masks to protect their lungs from air pollution.

The sanderling’s legs were bound together by a plastic string, impairing its movements.

This is what coal and metal mining pollution actually looks like in a river.

What started as an opportunity to photograph amazing sea life ended in frustration. This sea horse drifts by with a cotton swab.

This sea turtle didn’t ask for a painful hourglass figure.

If people don’t want to clean up after themselves, then animals will start.

Chilling on warm sand or sitting among garbage? We get to decide.

Instead of taking pictures how about you pick up the garbage? Plus, America is one of the cleanest places in the world, its only when foreigners comes here and brig their bad habits with them that we get trash everywhere.

The beach near me is very clean and has sign's posted "no dogs on beach from Memorial day to Labor day" and yet during the summer people from Latin American countries, let there dogs run wild and s@#$$%t all over the place and if they eat something on the beach they just get up and leave, leaving their trash behind even though there are trash barrels located along the 3 mile stretch of beach, a special truck combs the beach every morning to rake up all the c@#$$%p left by people, and the majority of people are from Latin America, but I guess they get a pass.

Its not racism, its lack of respect for your environment
