A dolphin has been euthanised after being discovered with two plastic bags and a balloon in her stomach.
The dolphin was discovered by the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute on Fort Myers Beach In Florida last week.
In a post on Facebook they said:
“This finding highlights the need to reduce single use plastic and to not release balloons into the environment.
“Please remember that marine mammals strand for a reason, often the animals are sick or injured.”
