Balloon, plastic bags, nylon rope and even rubber thongs are providing a deadly diet for Australia's critically endangered sea turtle population, a new study shows.
On the eve of World Ocean Day, research by the Earthwatch program Turtles in Trouble has shown that 36 per cent of Australian sea turtles are affected by marine litter, with some 18,000 pieces of plastic litter floating on every square kilometer of the world's oceans.

In April 2010, the Icelandic Volcano got me stuck in California where I was attending a Project AWARE global staff meeting to discuss the current state of our ocean planet and re-defined a clear, positive vision for the future. An epic journey back home and 14 months of team work later, I celebrated with my Project AWARE and PADI colleagues the re-launch of our organization with a new logo, website, mission, and strategies for ocean protection.
