The Dorset Rubber Jellyfish campaign continues at Durlston Country Park, Swanage (Saturday April 13th) and Child Okeford village hall (Friday May 3rd). Rubber Jellyfish is a feature-length documentary film by Australian wildlife conservationist and mum-to-be Carly Wilson. In the film Carly goes on a mission to uncover the truth surrounding sea-turtles and their propensity for dining on plastic waste.
These majestic creatures which have been around since the age of dinosaurs are under threat from ocean plastic and in particular bags, wraps and balloons which mimic their prey. Most shockingly Carly discovers ‘bio-degradable’ a term often used to sell eco-friendly alternatives being abused and so-called scientific studies misleading.
Take a look at any balloon packaging and it will tell you Choking Hazard!
