The tragic death comes just a week after a pilot whale was found dead with 80 plastic bags in its stomach
A rare sea turtle has starved to death after its stomach was clogged by rubber bands and scraps of plastic waste, leaving it unable to eat.

Unfortunately, the rare turtle died a painful death just 48 hours after it washed up on the beach in the eastern province of Chanthaburi, Thailand.
The country is one of the world’s largest consumers of plastic, which kills hundreds of marine mammals and reptiles swimming off its coasts each year.
