Slurp! A boy finishes his drink and tosses it in the trash, straw and all. He moves on without another thought....
In the waters off of Costa Rica, scientists spot an endangered sea turtle and pull him aboard to study him. But he has something stuck in his nose. A barnacle? A stick?'s a plastic straw!
This heroic story of one turtle's rescue reminds us that even the smallest straw can hurt our ocean life--and that the smallest demand for change can grow into something big!
