If only this was the last straw.

Marine biologists on a research trip in Costa Rica have pulled a struggling sea turtle out of the water, only to find its nostril blocked by a plastic straw. Debating whether or not to interfere with the poor wild animal for fear of legal ramifications, the biologists persisted and removed it completely. The turtle clearly did not like the procedure, but hopefully now it can breathe a little more freely. This is no ones fault but ours.

Plastic is drastic.
