Whale Dies In Thailand After Swallowing 80 Plastic Bags

Share

An autopsy conducted in Thailand over the weekend discovered so many large plastic sacks crammed into the whale's stomach that officials were unable to move around in the operating theatre without standing on the rubbish.

The whale was found to have an additional 80 items in its stomach, including bags and other pieces of plastic trash, weighing more than 17 pounds, Reuters reported.

Thon Thamrongnawasawat, a marine biologist and lecturer at Kasetsart University in Bangkok, told Agence France-Presse that the plastic probably prevented the whale from digesting food.

Jatuporn Buruspat, head of the department, said they planned to raise public awareness of the problem on World Oceans Day on June 8 and call for reduced use of plastic.

A whale has died after swallowing 80 plastic bags in southern Thailand.

The small male pilot whale became the latest victim after it was found barely alive in a canal near the border with Malaysia, the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources said on their Facebook page Saturday.

Dr. Thon said he was urging the Thai government to do the same.
