Arya Shinde, 15, was one of our first Ocean Youth Ambassadors in the inaugural Sydney program. Her love of the ocean and having fun in it was what drove her to us. But it's what she's learned along the way has been the kicker. Until Arya participated in several beach debris surveys she was unaware of how big a problem plastic pollution was on our beaches and in our oceans. What's more this plastic pollution is having a devastating impact upon ocean wildlife. Two rescue turtles in Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary are both suffereing from the impadts of ingesting plastic party balloons.
