Death by plastic

In this photo taken on March 16, 2019, Darrell Blatchley, director of D' Bone Collector Museum Inc., shows plastic waste found in the stomach of a Cuvier's beaked whale in Compostela Valley, Davao on the southern Philippine island of Mindanao. The whale died with 40 kilos (88 pounds) of plastic trash in its stomach, with activists calling it one of the worst cases of poisoning they have seen.
