"DEAD WHALE" ART
THE OCEAN IS DROWNING IN PLASTIC


Whale Art Installation in the Philippines: A whale replica was unveiled on the beach of Naic, Cavite, South of Manila. Through the art installation depicting a dead whale choked by plastics, Greenpeace Philippines seeks to underscore the massive problem of plastics pollution in the ocean and calls on the ASEAN to address this looming problem on its shores. A massive whale is unveiled on the shores of Sea Side Beach Resort in Naic, Cavite.  The 15m x 3m blue whale, which looked to be in the late stages of decomposition, immediately captured the attention of nearby communities and beachgoers. As groups gathered to haul off the dead whale, they noticed that its entire body was made of plastic wastes found in the ocean. The slimy innards sprawling out of its’ underbelly was a mix of plastic bags, remains of plastic containers, sachets, bottles and more. Photos of this morose installation spiraled around social media on the day itself, sparking conversations on pastics pollution—a topic far different from the viral oarfish photos in Mindanao that were said to be a sign of the “end of the world”.

 The oceans produce about 80% of the oxygen on our planet. We humans, supposedly the most advanced species on earth use it as our trash bin. Most plastic packaging, how much more repacking should be under punishment.

 











 


Why is this important?

The ocean is drowning in plastic.

 

The ocean is filled with 275 million tons of plastics. The cumulative quantity of plastic waste available to enter the ocean from land is predicted to increase by an order of magnitude by 2025, and is projected to outweigh fish in the ocean by 2050.

A 2015 study named five ASEAN member states as the biggest sources of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans. These are: Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia. ASEAN countries, due to their lengthy coastlines and high plastic usage, are some of the primary sources of marine plastics globally.

With the Philippines as chair of this year’s ASEAN Summit, this is an opportune time to call on the ASEAN member states to take concrete measures against plastics pollution in the high seas to stop environmental degradation and dwindling of marine life in the region.

ASEAN needs to work together to set appropriate regulations and encourage businesses to take responsibility for their environmental impact and consumers to take action.





Marine litter issue was included in the ASEAN Leaders statement to be released in November: https://www.asean2017.ph/asean-elevates-coastal-marine-environment-protection-bid/

















Even when you recycle, the sheer amount of plastic trash per person is scary. Lives of us humans were full before plastic. Saving our environment is worth it. The price to pay is only our convenience. Please.







THE CASE OF PLASTICS POLLUTIONJust in the first quarter of 2016, already more than 30 dead sperm whales were found washed up in the shores of Europe, with large amounts of plastic waste in their stomachs. Late last year, one of them was found here in Samal, Davao. The reaction of locals was almost baffling as they simply collected the whale’s carcass and transported it to a local museum where they usually display beached sea creatures found in the area.

Though the Philippines has made commitments to address the plastics issue through the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act since 2001, the country still ranks third highest contributor of plastic wastes in the ocean.















TIMELY DEATH OF THE WHALE

With the Philippines as chair of this year’s ASEAN Summit, Greenpeace Philippines took the opportunity to call upon ASEAN environmental leaders to take concrete measures against plastics pollution and to stop environmental degradation and dying marine life.

“The ASEAN region’s contribution to plastic pollution in the oceans cannot be ignored and is already way beyond alarming. We are asking the ASEAN membership to take this issue with a sense of urgency and demand that our leaders initiate bold steps to address plastics pollution through regional cooperation, exacting corporate responsibility and massive public education,” said Vince Cinches, Oceans Campaigner of Greenpeace Philippines.

Beyond initiating talks on plastics pollution in the Summit, environmental influencers and celebrities also joined the conversation by talking about the dead blue whale as the impending doom from plastics pollution predicted to outweigh marine life by 2050.





I believe the government should make measures to sustain our iceans by means of strict implementation of current anti-plastic regulations and even make more policies which would help preserve mother nature.

With this, we ask the public to support our cause, by strongly pledging to #RefusePlastic and telling ASEAN Countries to end the scourge of plastics by signing the petition http://bit.ly/aseanplastic #RefusePlastic
