Risky game

Lana Barteneva

Not many people know that sperm whales don’t chew their food, but suck it up. During our scientific research we have seen sperm whales playing with objects in the water more than once. But this game can be fatal. Plastic accidentally taken into the stomach is not digested. There have been cases worldwide where dozens of kilos of plastic have been found in the stomachs of sperm whales, causing death. Everything in nature is connected and a plastic bag dropped on a mountain can end up in the stomach of a whale. We made this video for NGO Marine Megafauna Conservation Organisation (MMCO) we work with, to rise awareness against plastic pollution and to protect these beautiful crrachers and our coastal waters.
