Heartbreaking Video Shows Diver Swimming In Sea Of Trash

1 min



Manta Point, a popular diving spot off the coast of Bali, Indonesia, is named for the numerous manta rays that frequent the spot. But on a recent expedition there, diver Rich Horner found it was a sea of garbage with just a few unfortunate animals to be seen. 

“The ocean currents brought us in a lovely gift of a slick of jellyfish, plankton, leaves, branches, fronds, sticks, etc… Oh, and some plastic,” Horner wrote in post online. “Some plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic cups, plastic sheets, plastic buckets, plastic sachets, plastic straws, plastic baskets, plastic bags, more plastic bags, plastic, plastic, so much plastic!”

Words pale in comparison to seeing all that floating trash on video — a chilling reminder of what pollution looks like for creatures who call the ocean home.
