Autopsy finds plastic in whale

PIECES of plastic found in a dead whale’s stomach in Tasmania has prompted authorities to repeat a warning against marine litter.
“Although we don’t know if the plastic tops caused the death of the animal, we do know that sickness or debilitation can cause whales to come inshore and strand,” she said.
“It’s not just being aware of disposal of your own rubbish but also removing rubbish you may see in the water when you are out there,” she said.
