We've been learning about how plastic bags kill hundreds of thousands of marine animals each year. We know one of the reasons for this, is because, when floating in the ocean, a plastic bag looks very similar to a jellyfish. Unfortunately, turtles love to eat jellyfish, and they end up choking on the plastic bag. We have begun a piece of art dedicated to these beautiful sea creatures.
After drawing an outline of a turtle (thanks You Tube!), we painted them. We reckon they are going to look pretty cool when they're finished.
Here are some pictures of us painting our turtles today:
