Eco Patrol Team Telašćica
Our sea Man transforms into the largest dump in the world! It is estimated that up to 12 million tons of plastic per year enter our seas all over the world and that around 80% of the world’s pollution of the sea is plastic waste. That waste in the sea comes by throwing it off from ships or shores, by wind from the land and by sea currents.
