Mylar helium filled balloon pollution. Condor Express guests get great photographs of this huge societal problem firsthand. Captain Mat C. steers the Condor Express alongside so deckhand Matt R. can grab and remove this dangerous garbage.
Mylar helium filled balloon pollution.... Two days after Valentine's day and there were at least 3 dozen balloons and clusters of balloons such as these on the surface of the ocean. When left to the forces of nature, the paint comes off and leaves behind a floating mass of clear plastic garbage. Some fish that prey on gelatinous animals may mistake the plastic garbage for food and kill themselves. Others become entangled. Society must ban helium filled mylar balloons as they are a menace to marine life and add to the horrible plastic debris problem in the Pacific.
Picturesque, yes, but a form of man-made pollution that entangles and causes harm to the natural marine life: helium balloons escape the city and blow out to the ocean where they land after the helium escapes. Let's put an end to this problem - ban helium baloons!
Rare pink dolphin sighted! Not really. A plastic dolphin balloon floats on the ocean. Some careless person let the helium filled monster go into the air and this is where the wind takes all airborn plastic balloons. Not good for REAL living things.
