Jenny Jenny has found a successful formula for her stories about animals that report a death. You may remember shedding tears at her “good boy” comic or her multi-faceted black cat story, which sought to shed light on the abuse and neglect of cats. She shared that she makes animal comics to give voice to the victims, which creates sympathy for the deaths of animals in human activities.
In her latest piece, the artist describes the far-reaching consequences of man-made natural disasters, plastic pollution, and how they harm wildlife.
Jenny’s new comic is about the effects of plastic waste on marine birds
Research has shown that plastic floating in the ocean attracts algae, which is fragrant and is eaten by albatrosses and other marine animals. By mistaking the algae for food, the birds then deliberately swallow the unwanted material or feed it to their young.
Some birds die from swallowing so much indigestible waste that they face obstacles or cannot eat enough food, as dramatic pictures of plastic carcasses have shown, but the effects of plastic use are common. Are poorer. To find out what happened to the birds before they died, Australian researchers conducted blood tests on the fleshy legs and hurricanes off the coasts of Australia and New Zealand, but the population continued to decline. Is coming It turns out that even birds that have used only a few pieces of plastic slowly become poisonous because the plastic is absorbed into their bodies from the polluted environment, causing growth, high cholesterol. And there is potential kidney disease.
Advances in ocean cleaning technology have been made in recent years, with a 2,000-foot-long plastic collector successfully lifting plastic into Pacific waste patches last year, and hundreds of plastic collectors called sedans Fixtures are installed in busy ports. all over the world. However, the guards say that if the cleaning technology continues to improve in the future and more such devices are installed in the future, they will stop dumping plastic in the sea without stopping. The sea is the only way to make a difference by legislating on the use of single-use plastics and educating the public on how to cut plastics.
