If marine life could take themselves to the hospital what would it look like? ‘Plastic Change International’ created a clip to show exactly how it looks.


Copenhagen, Denmark – Plastic Change is a non-governmental organisation in Denmark that is working towards fighting plastic in the ocean.

They create small animated clips to raise awareness for their cause, highlighting the problems that plastic pose to the environment. They created a clip about what it would look like if fish visited the hospital as humans do.

There are thousands of organisations that act as hospitals for marine life. Most coastal areas will have a place where sickly marine life is taken. For example here in South Africa, we have the Two Oceans Aquarium and Shaka Marine World that actively work to care for sickly marine life.

The whole point of the animated clip is to get people to take action with their own plastic use.

“Plastic Change has taken the plastic temperature in the world’s oceans and found that an increasing number of marine animals are paying the Sea doctor a visit with problems that they did not cause themselves. Exactly what happens when plastic packing and other plastic trash is thrown in nature and ends up in the ocean?”

Take a look at the short but powerful clip below.
