Italian fishermen fight to rid the sea of plastic waste
Over the last few weeks, several sperm whales have washed up on Italy's beaches with stomachs full of plastic. Sea plastic is threatening the marine ecosystem, and fishermen are on the frontline, trying to find a solution on the problem. At San Benedetto del Tronto, they're "fishing for plastic" in a month-long experiment. The aim is to get the fishermen to bring the plastic waste they catch back to dry land instead of throwing it back into the sea.
