A scary post for spooky Halloween!
Ghost nets are fishing nets that have been left behind or lost by fisherman to float around the ocean unmonitored. These nets are often hard to see and single net can ensnare hundreds of marine animals.
These nets kill over 650,000 animals yearly including turtles, whales, sharks, fish, seals, birds, dolphins and more.
They are also a huge threat to coral reef, as they drag through the reef they break them and expose them to disease.
How are we helping?
