Please do not litter! Especially where birds and animals live. We learn this in school but do not implement it in real life! Nobody cares about the impact of littering. I came across one distressing incident recently. This Darter (Anhinga rufa), a fish-eater, got a piece of cloth entangled in its beak and remained in this position for more than 2 hours. Luckily the bird was finally able to get rid of the cloth; otherwise it could have resulted in starvation and death.

As depicted in the image, litter can be dangerous, unhealthy, and it can persist in the environment for a very long time. Litter can also trap, suffocate, strangle and poison wildlife.
