Coastal Factoid – Plastics

In the Pacific Rim we celebrate the annual Pacific Rim Whale Festival in March and the Tofino Shorebird Festival in May. Globally, 90% of seabirds and shorebirds have consumed plastic, and 31% of cetaceans are consuming plastic. We honour these creatures with celebrations, but we must remember to do this in our daily actions as well.
