Marine Debris I-spy: Balloon Edition

Don’t let go of that balloon!

Did you know? Deflated balloons that enter the ocean resemble jellyfish, a common prey item for sea turtles.

In 2018, Loggerhead Marinelife Center and partner organizations removed over 1,241 balloons from Florida beaches.

Can you find some of the strange items we’ve collected during our beach cleanups in 2018?
