Three hundred thousand dolphins and porpoises die each year as a result of becoming entangled in discarded fishing nets, among other items.

More than 260 animal species worldwide have become entangled in or consumed fishing line, nets, ropes and other discarded equipment.
An astounding 86 percent of all marine turtles are affected by marine debris.
We need to look after our oceans and the animals that live in them! Thank you to the Aurora crew for there amazing efforts in saving these beautiful animals!
