The devastating problem of plastic pollution in our oceans is well-known when it comes to land-based litter. But the most harmful form of marine litter, a lesser-known danger hidden at the bottom of the sea, is the 800,000 tons of lost and abandoned fishing gear, known as “ghost gear” left in our oceans every year. World Animal Protection’s Sea Change campaign works to reduce the suffering and devastation caused by “ghost gear” that turns oceans into death traps for sea animals. Joining us with details and how you can help is Ingrid Giskes.
