Floating litter affects marine life and more art by ISPRA - Raffaella Piermarini

Floating litter affects marine life
[5]

A young Caretta caretta in the waters of the Azores Archipelago approaches floating litter under which a grouper shelters. Relative numbers of turtles in the Azores are: 88% from south Florida nests, 8% from northeast Florida to North Carolina nests, 3% from Mexico nests, and 1% from northwest Florida nests. We still know very few of what happens in the first years of their life which remains a great mystery to which researchers have not yet been able to answer. These first years are called “the lost years”.
