Plastic Trash in the Ocean

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am going to mention wilderness environmental topics from time to time. It was just called to my attention by Lynn Funkhauser that there is a thought-provoking video entitled the Pelagic Plastic Plague posted on YouTube that highlights the current situation with plastic refuse being discarded into the ocean. I recommend that you view it. Thanks.
