Sometimes it’s what you DON’T do that saves the environment

Our friend Fran in South Carolina snapped this shot of a beautiful royal tern flying over Crab Bank Seabird Sanctuary, entangled in a latex balloon & its ribbon. Balloons are worse than other forms of litter because they are sent aloft in great numbers & can find their way to places otherwise untouched by humans. Trashed balloons are a threat to all animals - land, sea & air.
Much respect to our friends at the South Carolina Shorebird Project

Don’t release balloons at parties and weddings and community celebrations.
